Constant Companion.................Erica Michaels

Constant Companion was inspired by an antique sampler stitched in 1854 by Margaret Farms, and while Linda replicated the vibrant border stitched by Margaret Farms, she used a stitching related quotation that comes from 19th-century author, Nathanial Hawthorne.  For the larger sampler, Linda used 30 ct. "Mariner's Map" linen and stitched using Gentle Arts Simply Wool, Antique Rose, Baby Spinach (3), Buckeye Scarlet (2), Copper, Dungarees, Fragrant Cloves, Honey Dew, Morning Glory, Oatmeal as well as a Simply Shaker Onyx.  The finished size is approx. 10" x 9.5".  Also included in the chart pack is the information and chart for stitching the sampler on 40 ct. silk gauze (not included) using Weeks Dye Works, Blue Jeans, Carrot, Dirt Road, Hibiscus, JayBird, Monkey Grass, Onyx, Sandcastle (10 yds), Turkey Red, Wasabi. The model on silk gauze uses exactly the same border but looks completely different.  Colors are similar, but the background highlights the design in a very distinctive manner.  You would get a similar look if you use darker linen should you elect not to stitch on the silk gauze.  The quotation on the silk gauze sampler comes from the introduction to The Ladies' Work Table Boo:Clear and Practical Instructions in Plain and Fancy Needlework published in 1844.     The design size is approx. 3.75" x 3.75"
