Description:

A cheater sampler, for those without the time to do all that embroidery. See the Flickr link to see the design right side up.Besides the traditiona A cheater sampler, for those without the time to do all that embroidery. See the Flickr link to see the design right side up.

Besides the traditional upper and lower case alphabets, the numbers from 1-0, and a tree of life; I have added some other symbolic elements. Some of these are traditional, some I made up.

An owl for wisdom, Blue birds for happiness, wheat for fertility, a fountain of water for constant refreshment, The sun for light and laughter, the moon for peace and tranquility, vines to bind you together, flowers for beauty and variety.

There is a very light "tea" tint to the background to give the finished sampler a vintage look. Enough room has been left to allow personalization with names and a date.

Make them for all your married friends; 4 samplers to a yard of quilting weight cotton; with allowance for approximately 1/2 inch hem (there is a guide line).

Just one additional note; every "stitch" was individually drawn for a more authentic look.

This could also be used as a tea towel.

uzumakijo says: Love this Victoria, really great idea to do a sampler, and i love how you've made it look really authentic by doing all the 'stitches' by hand....really worth the extra work. Fab details too with the symbolic icons. Really stands out in the contest as being unique and beautiful!

weaving...

victorialasher says: Thank you Francine. I was thinking it would make an amusing tea towel. Probably someone's first thought would be, "Oh no! I can't believe she's using that sampler as a towel!"

victori...

victorialasher says: I guess I did, Alex. Thank you Cean, Vo, Babysisterrae, Khoward, Scrummy, Rhonda, Nadja, Patty, Catru, Weavingmajor, and Kec19. I think I might offer this for sale, personalized with digital "stitching" (thanks for that term Catru), so all the stitching will match. It wasn't intended to look like counted cross stitch, although the alphabet and numbers are done in cross stitches; so any fabric will work, although it's sized for the quilting weight.

weaving...

weavingmajor says: oh, this is beautiful, Victoria! Well done! I love how you've done the subtle color variations in the thread, it really gives it a sense of dimensionality. all the elements are so nice - the tree, the owl, the sun... beautiful! <p>I thought maybe the linen-cotton canvas would make a good substitute for aida cloth, but then I realized there's really no way to make the X's line up with the fabric even if you sized the X's just right... sigh. I think it would actually print better on the quilting cotton, especially since that's how the original ones were usually worked! What a nifty idea for an alphabet fabric - lovely and uncontrived!

ceanirminger says: This completely looks like it was hand stitched in the 1800's, great job completely capturing the charm of a hand embroidered keepsake! Thanks to you now we non-crafters can perpetrate like we can embroider without all of the blood, sweat and tears I'm sure goes along with it!
