1815 Margaret Mathews Sampler Cover picture

Here is the cover picture- isn't it just wonderful?

1815 Margaret Mathews Sampler by Sheepish Designs

I decided to take a break from my Mary Wigham sampler and add some stitches to this one I started last year and put on hold to do MW. It is an Adam and  Eve sampler in Sampler and Antique Needlework magazine, Summer 2000. It is a challenging piece since the stitches are not evenly over 2 but spaced plus it is done on 40 ct Sandstone linen using 1 strand of Soie D'alger. I am an avid Adam and Eve fan so this was a must do for me. I will definitely finish it this year.
