A Mensing 1872
- Product Code: CS-M-AMENS
- Availability: 18
A sweet, little redwork sampler that combines cross, Algerian eyelet, and four sided stitches in a most pleasing way. Miss Mensing's stitches were not always perfect. Some letters float slightly above the others, her spacing is at times irregular, and there is an occasional missed stitch. I have charted these as they are. A sampler that is charming for its simplicity and sincerity.
Model stitched on 35 count Week's Dye Works "Linen" linen. The Gentle Art's Pomegranate thread used throughout.
Stitch count: 136w x 132h.
Finished size: 7.5"w x 7.25"h on 35 count linen.
