Eliza Stringer Sampler

In preparation for my participation at the Great British Sampler Weekend in the UK in 2023, attendees were invited to stitch this small teaser of a sampler. This was stitched on 32-count overdyed Lugana by Fabric Flair in the colorway Mushroom Slushee using overdyed threads from Weeks Dye Works and Classic Colorworks.

I continue to also do related covered buttons for my Sampler in a Jar. This sampler is a reproduction originally stitched by Eliza Stringer at the age of 6.

I'm looking forward to returning to England with plans to visit London, Cambridge, Windsor, Bath, and possibly the Island of Wight, as well as attending the stitching retreat in Swindon.
