Mary Wigham by Hiyo-san

Hiyo-san stitched her Mary Wigham on 40 count Vintage Exemplar Lakeside Linen, with Needlepoint Silks and Gloriana. She personalised her sampler by adding very small motifs and words - can you spot them? Hiyo-san says she found it difficult to imagine and decide on colors as she stitched. But then this is such a large sampler with many variables in the threads and motifs, that I am not surprised by anyone struggling to imagine completed variations. Did anyone find it easy?


  1. I didn`t find it easy to envision my sampler while I was stitching it...I changed some colours as I went, and tried to balance the colours of the motifs. When it was finished, I loved it, so I think I was successful.

  2. Wow 40 count that is wonderful. I love the colors and your work is great. I bet it will have a place of honor at your place. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  3. Oh, I forgot to add that Hiyo`s Mary is beautiful!!
