Not all reproduction samplers are quiet and subdued. Meet H Sophia Baker.
I love old samplers. They often appear almost ghostly, having faded so far into time. Others arrive with freshly-lipsticked smile, all bright and gleaming.
H Sophia Baker is one such freshly-painted gem. I love her rough stitches, her almost-garish colours and her sense of cheer. I can’t help but think that little Sophia relished her bright wools. I hope you enjoy stitching this as much as I think Sophia did.
The pdf of H Sophia Baker 1878 contains both a black-and-white and a colour chart. To see an adaptation of this design, see my Together 2020 project. Enjoy!
