I love this reproduction. It's stitched on 32 count vintage Exampler linen from Lakeside Linens and Designs using two strands of Black Coffee overdyed thread (Crescent Colours)over two threads of linen. Even though this is a smallish sampler, it took six skeins of Black Coffee to complete! Thank you so much JoAnn Ambrose for your fabulous stitching of the sampler!!!

It is so very pretty! I bet it did take a lot of that color!
