Hannah Green 1826 is a captivating sampler from Hands Across the Sea.

Hannah executed her sampler predominantly with cross stitches laid over two threads of linen; only the verse, parts of the butterflies, and the flocks of birds have been worked in cross stitch over one thread of linen. Hannah also used rice and satin stitch.

    About the Sampler from the Designer

    "On March 1, in the year of our Lord 1826, Hannah Green completed her sampler at the age of 12 years. It is a truly stunning sampler. The composition of this sampler is what captures the viewer’s eye, holds their attention, and controls the movement of the eye. Strong artistic compositions are vital to the success of a piece of art (yes schoolgirl samplers are art).

    I have spent many hours studying Hannah’s sampler – her work draws you in. We can be affected by a beautiful design without understanding why. There is something about Hannah’s sampler that creates a sense of gentle harmony. The colours that Hannah used in her sampler are rich and vibrant, yet no one hue dominates; there is harmony and balance."
