Ann Wellington 1809 - Week 1

Ann Wellington Sampler 1809
T&N Designs Inc
32 ct. Magnolia linen

Back to my beloved reproduction samplers!  Oh so happy bout it too!

This is a chart my sister gave to me. She fell out of love with it, so I got to be the lucky recipient.  I can tell you I debated stitching her.  But with the fiasco of  not having the right fabrics for the next 3 samplers I planned to stitch.  Ann quickly moved to the top of the list.

I am honestly enjoying stitching her.  She's progressing quite nicely. Plus the colors are actually pretty too.  Greens and coral pinks. 

At this point I'm about 1/3rd through the chart.  I'll be moving the scroll rods tomorrow, but wanted to share the upper border. 

All 3 pieces of my 27 ct. Unbleached/Raw/natural showed up.  So maybe by the end of the year I'll have worked my way through all the charts in my stash with 1980's copyright dates.  Yea that's right I have charts that are almost 30 years old.  

I finished organizing my scroll rods and wanted to share the finished product.

Best idea I've had in awhile!  Well besides ordering these from the Internet!

Seriously I never can figure out which pull works the light or the fan.  Guess that's because I'm a visual person!

Short post this week!  Happy stitching all!


  1. Wow, you made fabulous progress on Ann! Go Pam! I like that border. Way to go on getting your scroll bars organized! Enjoy your week!

  2. You have a great week too! Enjoying stitching Ann!

  3. Thanks for the giggle on the fan/light thingys!!!

  4. I can't be the only one! One of my grade school/high school classmates tried to explain to me which pull went to what! I said "there you go trying to be rational and logical again!" Pulls are on the way, will be great not to have to guess!

  5. Love the Ann Wellington Sampler but can't seem to find it when I try on line. Is this still available do you know?
    Love your blog!

    1. Christine this is a chart from the late 1980's. Unfortunately someone contacted me and asked to purchase it and I sold it. Best bet will now be eBay, etsy or maybe one of the ISO (in search of pages on FB) or the many sell/buy cross stitch on FB.

    2. Emli's says they have it, but I wouldn't trust her site. It hasn't been updated in years. Trying calling Carol Sessoms at Emlis to see if she has it. She's not good about reading emails either.
