FO - Ren Sampler



The Renaissance Sampler

by Sharon Cohen of the Nostalgic Needle

Type: Historic Inspired - Elizabethan Cutwork Samplers

Ground Fabric: 32 count Summer Khaki Linen,

Thread: Au Ver A Soie/Soie d'Alger silks and DMC perle cottons

Stitches: (OMG, what isn't in there!) Cross, Long Arm Cross, Rice, Queen, Bargello, Running and Backstitch, Basketweave Tent over one, French Knots, Lazy Daisy, Chain Stitch, Satin, Detached Buttonhole on both Solid and Open grounds, Woven and Wrapped bars, several different types and shapes of Needleweaving, Picots and Bullion Knots

And THIS is a "simple" openwork piece!

Nevertheless, love the piece, love the designer. Wish I would have not let it languish for six years between setting up the openwork area and actually putting scissors to it!
