Mary Peacock by Lea Peacock

It is a special occasion when a stitcher shares the same family name as a sampler maker of old. There are so many threads that join us that it cannot be a surprise that Lea was drawn to stitching her namesake's, Mary Peacock's, sampler. But Lea has truly made this sampler her very own. She used her favorite linen - Permin Natural (67-B) 40ct. The cross stitches look like little pearls resting on the this linen. Lea made slight adjustments to customise the design and changed the colour palette to one more convenient to her. Well done Lea - thank you so much for sharing!
