I know there are a lot of Adam and Eve lovers who can't seem to get enough of this cute little couple. Adam looks a tiny bit like a girl. We can't ask Elizabeth what she was thinking when she stitched him. This chart is a repro/adaptation taken from the original Elizabeth Hancock sampler that came out in 2011. You may remember that I didn't reproduce the entire piece. This adorable section was located at the bottom/middle in her finished work.
What you need to know about this design is that the words "Adam" and "Eve" were not on the sampler. I added them myself. The flowers were moved from another area, the birds were in the vicinity of the tree but not exactly where I put them, and I charted it for hand dyed cotton and not silk. Stitch-for-stitch the tree, people and design elements are the way Elizabeth stitched them herself.
The frame is from Valley House Primitives and makes it look like an old sampler, don't you think???
I hope to get to the web site and update the supply lists for all three charts either tomorrow or Saturday. Lots going on here so all I can say is I'll try! We ship to our distributors tomorrow.
