Nicola has generously made these gorgeous Little Gems available for download now via our store.
This dainty sampler has been reproduced with a palette of 10 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. Mary stitched her sampler with cross stitch over 2 strands of linen. The model was stitched on Legacy Linen in Sycamore Seedpod. The linen on the original sampler is closest in colour to DMC shade 3866.
The project has been rated as suitable for needleworkers of all levels of ability and can be stitched on Aida or linen.
