Who can resist a red house sampler? Jane’s colourful sampler glows with good cheer. Contained within a stylised red carnation border is a delightful scene of a sturdy redbrick house surrounded by urns of fruit, four birds and auriculas. The parkland abounds with deer, two small dogs and an aristocratic cat with tail held high. The three chimneys, with smoke billowing, create a feeling of “home is where the hearth is” and adds to the overall feeling of warmth the sampler conveys.
Janes’ charming sampler has been reproduced with a palette of eleven 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 if stitching on 40ct and higher. The thread quantities listed below are for 36ct fabric.
Jane can be stitched either on Aida, Linaida or linen. The model was stitched on 53/63ct Legacy Linen in Gothic Ivory. The original sampler was stitch on linen a colour similar to DMC shades 712.
