I designed the "Lillia
Mueller Sampler" for my 10 year old daughter to stitch. This
was her first time working on linen and it was hard for her at first,
but she eventually got the hang of it. I have to say, she had a
LOT of help from me along the way, but she did very well. You can do
yours as a "reproduction" of Lillia's, or use the letters from the
sampler to do your own name and age.
This piece was stitched on 36 count
Vintage Examplar linen by Lakeside Linens with one strand of Gentle Arts
Onyx floss over two threads
The finished size
on 36 count linen is 8 1/4 x 15 inches.
