Maria Grant’s fabulous rendition of Alice Smith 1841 using Lakeside Buttercream and DMC. She has the first two pages of the border done. We love it, Maria! So looking forward to seeing more of your progress.
Amelie Lambert stitched her sweet sampler in the year 1844. We see from her sampler the love she had for her parents and just adore the precious pup waiting for Amelie to return home. The sampler was probably her first effort as a young schoolgirl. Often similar samplers were stitched as a precursor to more elaborate samplers.

Coming this summer is beautiful Eliza Strawbridge, 1819. I just love the colors on this one! For Adam & Eve lovers and sheep lovers, this will be a must stitch!
And added to the lineup, beautiful Elizabeth Strickland! Stitched in Needlepoint Inc silk on Weeks 36 ct Parchment, a DMC conversion is provided. Stitch count is 181 x 196. I really love how the framing sets off the colors of the sampler – framing was done by Edith Antl of Art Etc. Picture Framing in Cleveland Ohio. Stitching was done by the very talented Robert Smith. Released March, 2018.
This year Victorian Rose will be releasing a new series based on beloved Scripture passages. Just released at the Nashville market in March is the first in the series, a sampler inspired by the 23rd Psalm. How comforting to know that Jesus is the gentle Shepherd who guides us to green pastures of everlasting peace and tranquility. He indeed restores our troubled soul. Shown is the gentle Shepherd tending to a flock of sweet, innocent lambs. The sampler is stitched with DMC on 40 ct Picture This Plus Wren. Stitch count 179 w x 183 h. Released March, 2018.
