My Salley Morse is complete, done, finished, framed and will get hung today!
This SL piece is from the Hope R Hacker sampler collection at the Allentown Art Museum, Allentown PA - USA. I purchased it as a kit - silk threads.
I reversed the color of the alphabet, by accident many years ago, and just kept going last month - as if were the original plan.
It came out larger than the 5" x 7" noted with the kit. I used a custom frame - wonderful tiger maple that glows!! I used a lacing technique to mount the sampler. I attached the chart cover page to the back of the frame, and signed/dated the back.
Sewing tools: Sterling scissors, child's thimble and holder, vegetable carved tape measure with stanhope end. 19th Century chintz in the background.
Thank you for your encouragement! A finish feels great, and I am loving your posts and temptations. Next up for me is a little over one...Til then -
Have a great time stitching!
