Another wonderful release from Hands Across the Sea Samplers. Their samplers are so inspiring and beautiful and the detail in them is fascinating.
The charts are in booklet form, A4 size, printed in full colour on silk art paper and illustrated with beautiful art work. These are quality collector’s items and worth having to look at even if you don't get round to stitching them. The historical notes which accompany the samplers add to their interest and collectability. All these samplers are charted for Au Ver a Soie silk with a DMC conversion.
Amy's delightful sampler depicts a wonderfully imaginative landscape park with a velvet lawn, specimen fruit trees and shrubs together with a pinery flanking the terraces as they rise up to a classical temple. She depicts a Georgian era menagerie which includes giraffes, deer, squirrels, dogs, hares and an aviary of birds.
