Sadie Woods 1901
CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Barbara Ana Designs
A beautiful tree, heavy with fruit, lanky branches extending far out, forms a hollow like a shelter. Sadie is holding on to her older sister's hand and to her doll. A dog, rabbit, cat and farm animals surround them.
Designed by Barbara Ana, this is the second sampler "by" Sadie Woods. It is dated 1901, one year later that the first Sadie Woods sampler would have been stitched, and shows a more mature design and layout. It retains the same faded and rustic feel, with a similar color scheme of bluish grey and rusty reds, as if the yound stitcher was using the same stash of yarns. Together the samplers form a beautiful pair:

"The Lord is my shepherd " as well as the full Sadie B. Woods signature and the date "the year 1901" feature in the lower part of the pattern. A bit of fantasy is added with the oversize butterfly - already present in the first sampler but with a more sophisticated feel - as well as a triangle border motif at the base.
The sampler is stitched using the same rustic fabric as the original Sadie Woods sampler, in particular the unevenweave Natural Osnaburg Cotton (40/32ct). It is undyed and slighly uneven (warp and weft not equal), which makes for slightly rectangular stitches. Soft walnut stains contribute to the vintage feel.
Note: although the chart is almost square, the use of the Osnaburg fabric will give it the rectangular shape pictured:
If stitched on Osnaburg it will measure 8,40" x 10,31"
If stitched on 32 ct. evenweave it will measure 10,50” x 10,31”
Alternative background color fabrics can be used, as shown in the picture below right.
