Frances Carter Sampler

And here is the first of the Spring Releases for Nashville.

This is the Frances Carter Sampler. It is dedicated to my Grandma Frances. She was a writer and I love reading her books of poetry and short stories. This sampler has a few lines from one of her poems.

Lilacs are in bloom;
Beautiful as quaint old lace,
Fragrant as young love.

This chart is also the first to introduce my new format charts.  
They have a cover photo and instructions in a reusable ziplock bag.

The stitch count is 152 wide by 138.  I stitched it on 32 count Lambswool Linen, over 2 threads. It measures 9 1/2 inches wide by 9 inches high. It is stitched with 2 ply of Sampler Threads from The Gentle Art: Grape Arbor, Moonlit Path, Raspberry Frost, Endive, Harvest Basket, Summer Shower.
