Miss Lucy Calcutt 1825 - originally stitched by Lucy when she was only 8 years old! Wow!
|Lucy Calcutt 1825|
So many beautiful colors...pinks, purples, reds, they all just pop on the linen! With flowers and sweet animals every bit is filled with happiness!
I stitched the model in all cross stitch, just as Lucy did, on 36 ct Light Examplar Lakeside Linen with DMC threads. My adapted reproduction was charted using photos of the antique and matching colors as closely as possible - not as easy as I thought! I sent her off to Sherri and Terri at Total Framing in Fairfax, Virginia and they helped me pick out just the right frame.
She is a biggie!! Such a happy sampler and I am so thrilled to finally share my finish! It has been an exciting process of learning to chart an antique sampler and be the first to stitch it since Lucy did herself in 1825! And, I am happy to be able to make the sampler chart available for others to do so as well!
