The Original Mary

In reference to the last blog post and the question of the dark blue crown motif in the upper right corner, here is a picture of the original sampler for comparison... the chart appears to be correct...


  1. Beth,I think you are right. I used a magnifying glass and the crown is slightly off center. Sad part is that I pulled mine out and have it almost all restitched. But I like it anyway.


  2. It is SO helpful to have a nice large, clear image of the original at hand. Many thanks for posting this!

  3. I keep my engagement calendar close at hand while I am stitching and like to do a true reproduction so I did it off kilter and love the way it looks! I think it humanizes the girls who made mistakes just like us!!
