I gasped when I saw this incredibly graceful finish to Hannah Gilpin's sampler which was stitched by Teresa. I have to say Hannah Gilpin's sampler is probably my favourite simply because of its lovely restrained palette of warm shades of grey-brown. Teresa says: I have my beautiful Hannah Gilpin sampler back from the framer. The frame is a perfect compliment to the embroidery. I am so happy with it. This is the largest needlework project I have ever attempted. It's taken me about 18 months or so to complete. I lost a lot of stitching time last summer due to my thumb injury. Otherwise, I continually stitched on it every free moment. This was not one of my many projects that was started and then put aside!
Download. Hannah's sampler is stitched in gentle shades of brown on cream. The chart comes with an eBook of all the Gilpin samplers in the Ackworth collection.
