Elizabeth Hancock 1831

Finally a finish! I started this sampler back in October and have been working on it off and on ever since. I thought it might help me re-ignite my interest in stitching. The linen was a joy to stitch on - 36ct Vintage Sand Dune from Lakeside. I had it all kitted up with the called for Belle Soie silks and the colors were luscious! It took forever to stitch that border! 

This is not a true reproduction, but rather an adaptation and it was charted by Little House Needleworks. I’ve had it in my stash for a few years!

Here’s a recent Lizzie shot; she was all tucked in and taking a nap.

Her friend Nala (my daughter’s dog) is staying with us this week; they are besties.

Elizabeth Hancock is lovely! She was my 2020 birthday start. You've inspired me to pull her out for some stitchy love.
