"My Michelle Sampler"
This sampler is stitched on 28 count Belfast Linen in Antique White. It is stitched in Au Ver a Soie silk threads, as well as one color (Olive) of Waterlilies from Caron Collection. I stitched this in 2005. I started it in July, but had to wait a while for the waterlilies to come in the mail. One 36" strand was enough of all the colors, except for the dark green and the red, of which I needed two strands. A beautiful design and I love the colors. Brad made the frame for me in 2006.
