 Framed Linen Sampler

Offered this month is a framed sampler 
measuring approximately 10" square.  I 
have stitched this on aged evenweave linen 
using overdyed threads.

The sampler is hand stitched around the backing board 
which is set in the frame, no glue is used on the linen 
The frame is reclaimed lumber with a re-purposed 
decorative wood trim that is attached to the top frame rail.

 It is backed with plain brown paper and has a wire 
hanger and eyes secured to the back frame for hanging.

Primitive Rabbit 'n Chick Hornbook

This punch needle hornbook is an adaptation from 

Brenda Gervais of With Thy Needle and Thread and 
measures 5" x 10" x 3/4".
It is worked with Valdani hand over-dyed threads and 

edged with black boucle. A string of buttons is tied 
to the top. 

The stitchery is secured to a unique repurposed 

side of a vintage drawer, the old dovetail joint can 
be seen at the bottom of the piece.  It has dings, 
dents and a history of character in the wood that 
adds to the charm of old saved pieces.
