Reproduction cross stitch pattern from Hands Across the Sea Samplers!

Note from the designer:

Mary stitched her delightful sampler with cross stitch over two threads of linen and four-sided stitch. The sampler is suitable for needleworkers of all levels of ability and can be stitched on Aida, Linaida or linen.

What a shame that Mary did not record the year she finished her sampler and other information such as a date or location. The samplers stitched by Stuart, Georgian, and Victorian schoolgirls can provide us with a window through which we can catch glimpses of their lives. Recreating their work is a time when we can remember the forgotten women.

So often women disappear into history, their lives unrecorded. Yet in the face of enormous challenges, numerous women have fought their way to the fore and flourished. There are so many women overlooked who defied the norm, excelled, and made lasting impacts on those around them and beyond. Did Mary grow up to be such a woman? Sadly, we will never know.

Mary's sampler was most probably stitched sometime during the long reign of Queen Victoria between the ages of 8 and 12. She used 20ct Penelope canvas and wool to execute her sampler. The vibrant colours she chose have only mellowed slightly, and it is the colours from the front of the sampler today that we have used in our reproduction.

Mary was industrious with her needle, covering her fabric with a multitude of charming motifs. Her sampler reminds us of Christmas with its rich greens and reds.

Two swans catch the eye. White swans symbolise light, grace, beauty, love, and purity. The swan is an emblem of feminine beauty and softness. Fairy tales feature swans as emblems of devotion, loyalty, and monogamy; this comes from the fact that the swan mates once in a lifetime.

Other motifs include a farmer and his wife, two cottages, towering fir trees, owls, stags, rampant lions, goats, dogs, shrubs and plants, and a pair of parrots. All contained within a border of rose campions.

We hope that you enjoy stitching Mary Snow's sampler as much as we have enjoyed reproducing her.

21-2756 Annie Bayliss - God Save The Queen - Cross Stitch Pattern
by Hands Across the Sea Samplers
$29.00 $26.09
  Add to Wish List
Reproduction cross stitch pattern from Hands Across the Sea Samplers dated 1887.

Note from the designer:

Annie's monochrome sampler has been a delight to reproduce. The little girl recorded that her sampler was stitched in Belvedere and completed in the December of 1887. She dedicated her sampler to her sovereign with the words "God Save The Queen".

Belvedere is a town in the south-east of London that lies close to the River Thames.

The year of 1887 that Annie's sampler marked was a very special year in Great Britain's history. This year was the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria.

Royal jubilees are an occasion to celebrate the life and reign of a monarch and are significant events which are celebrated around the world. Though the concept of the jubilee began in biblical times, today the term is most closely associated with the Royal Family and the ceremony and spectacle which the term symbolises.

As the 50th anniversary of Queen Victoria's reign approached, the British government felt that a monumental celebration was in order. Victoria did not celebrate her 25th anniversary on the throne in 1862 as her husband, Prince Albert, had died in December 1861. His death sent Victoria into a deep depression, and she stayed in seclusion for many years, rarely appearing in public. She mourned him by wearing black for the remaining forty years of her life.

Queen Elizabeth II became the longest-reigning British monarch on September 9, 2015, when she surpassed the reign of her great-great-grandmother Victoria. On February 6, 2017, she became the first British monarch to celebrate a Sapphire Jubilee, commemorating 65 years on the throne.

In 2022, Her Majesty will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, seventy years of service, having acceded to the throne on February 6, 1952, when she was 25 years old.

Commemorative souvenirs have been a popular way of marking royal events such as jubilees for the last three centuries. The earliest known English commemorative items date from the Restoration of Charles II as king in 1660, followed by his Coronation in 1661 and wedding in 1662. Popular items which have been used to commemorate jubilees past and present include coins, stamps, and ceramics.

We hope that you will stitch Annie's little red sampler to commemorate The Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The sampler has been rated as suitable for all levels of ability. The design is worked in cross stitch over one and two threads of linen and running stitch. The sampler could be stitched over 4 and 2 threads of linen if preferred.

Our grateful thanks go to Bhooma Aravamudan for exquisitely stitching the model of Annie's sampler. At the very core of Hands Across the Sea Samplers there is a team of needleworkers who are passionate about antique samplers and being able to share those samplers with you.
