This lovely font was copied directly from a 1730 sampler at the Harris Museum & Art Gallery. After charting the pattern, I modified some of the letters to square them off. Then I embroidered them onto evenweave linen to make some really cute christmas ornaments!

I'm a dye hard fan of textile history and come from a family of crafters and needlewomen. I'm interested in learning more about embroidery and experimenting with new stitches and techniques. I hope you enjoy looking through my recent projects.
