As I mentioned in my last blog entry, I will be participating in Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year Challenge by stitching up Scarlet Letter's Emma Miles 1848 Sampler. I have ordered the chart and it should be sent to me the first of next week, along with Joanne Harvey's Ann Bowers Sampler. I am also participating in an Attic Needlework SAL for the Ann Bowers Sampler. I just LOVE samplers:)
So that I can get my ducks in a row for Nicola's Challenge I need some help from those that already have this chart in their stash. Can anyone tell me the size of the sampler...how many stitches wide and tall? Also, I would like to stitch this with AVAS silks. Do you know if that is what is provided on the chart? If so, can anyone give me the AVAS numbers?
Lastly, what is the suggested linen? I love to stitch on 36 count. So I'm hoping to use that count fabric.
Here is a picture of Emma's Sampler from the Wye Needlecraft Website:
Until next time,
