Dorothea Padies

Dorothea Padies reproduction

Most samplers from Vierlanden area are large and densely worked and thus opulent. In contrast, Dorothea Padies minimized the motifs on her very fine linen: the alphabets, the trees of life and the rosettes - very small! Unusual for this area is that the girl has highlighted her name. But she has also stitched the other option: DTPD, ie Doro-Thea Pa-Dies.

The beautiful, small and plain sampler belongs to the collection of the National Museum of Scotland, formerly Royal Scottish Museum in Edinburgh (inventory number: 1961, 594; size of the original: 26.7 x 23 cm). It was presented to the public in the exhibition "Samplers" in 1978.

Karen Bugg's gorgeous reproduction. What great fun to stitch and she stitched up soooo fast.. it took about 2 1/2 weeks to stitch her..
Donna's terrific reproduction. She used 40 ct LL Peddlers Moon and HDF crushed berries and black
