Ann Matthews 1859 - A Little Gem by HATS

Nicola has generously made these gorgeous Little Gems available for download now via our store.  

Ann is a beautiful little Welsh sampler worked with a palette of bright colours that pop out from the linen. The sampler is framed by a simple but very effective border using sumptuous red and duck egg blue silks, and she continues to use some very vibrant colour combinations.

Ann’s delightful sampler has been reproduced with a palette of 17 colours from Au Ver à Soie’s range of Soie 100.3. We have provided conversions for Soie d’Alger and DMC. Only one spool or skein of each colour is required when stitching with 40ct and higher. If you are using under 40ct, you will need two skeins of DMC 904 and 321, and two skeins of Soie d’Alger 2135 and 2923.

The model was stitched on Weeks Dyeworks (Zweigart-based) linen in Parchment. We would recommend a fabric close in colour to DMC shades 739 and 738.
