Description

Genevieve Sampler is styled in the fashion of antique collectible samplers.

This sampler boasts a cursive alphabet stitched with teal blue embroidery floss.

For the Genevieve Sampler a pineapple was chosen for the motif. The symbolic meaning of the pineapple is Hospitality.

The pineapple crown has olive leaves which were satin stitched for a deep rich embellishment, while the pineapple was stitched in gold.

The house blessing was stitched in rust. The signature line is stitched in walnut.

A vintage frame was chosen, therefore, it was completely resurfaced.

First the old finish was sanded away. Next the frame was painted with barn red acrylic paint, then distressed (re-sanded). Lastly, it was finished with a  top coat of stain. I’ve used this method for well over 30 years and love the results, as many do also.

The frame measures 13 1/2” x 11”. The back of the frame is covered with brown kraft paper and has a saw tooth hanger.

The item available here for purchase is the completed sampler.

This pattern is also available for purchase. Special orders may be considered.
