Fiona Rutherford Miniature Sampler Pattern 1866
A delightful miniature sampler to add to your collection, most likely American in origin based on styling. Fiona Managed to fit 2 complete alphabets into this tiny sampler not to mention the house scenery is stunning.
This pattern is designed to be stitched over one thread on 32ct linen. This will make the finished piece a very tiny miniature sampler. The tiny size gives it its appeal and charm. It could be stitched as a larger piece but the effect would be lost. Aida cloth is not advised.
You can find a kit here:
Design Area: 129 stitches wide by 183 stitches high.
Stitched Area: 4 inches (10.2cm) wide by 5-3/4 inches (14.5cm) high
Fabric size: 10 inches (25cm) wide by 8 inches (30cm) high this includes 3 inch (8cm) allowance on all sides for finishing or framing.
The measurements given are for 32ct fabric. ONE strand of floss is used for all stitches and stitched over one fabric thread. There are a few half stitches, the rest is all cross stitches. Four colors of floss are used.
The printed paper chart consists of a color image of the finished design, instructions, and a list of floss colors; A color & black and white symbol chart is spread over several A4 sheets for printing.
Thank you and happy stitching!
