Jane Bannister 1855

A Welsh Sampler from the island of Anglesea

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.

Jane's beautiful Welsh sampler is a delight for the eye. With a palette of 32 colours Jane filled her sampler with traditional Welsh motifs contained within a stunning floral border. Roses, lilies and convolvulus in full bloom graciously sweep around this beautiful sampler. Jane diligently stitched pretty vases of flowers such as Ragged Robins from the Lychnis family and Auriculas in the Primrose family, two sailing ships, birds and butterflies abound, and two beautiful bowls of fruit
