Saxon Sampler

"A noble alphabet is the crowning touch on Hannelore Orkis's impressive Saxon Sampler. Enclosed by a series of borders which produce the visual effect of a single, wide, lace-like boundary, the sampler carries both upper and lower case Old English style alphabets and mirror image flower pots."

This Saxon Sampler appeared in the June 1989 issue of Just CrossStitch magazine. It was stitched on and framed with no mat. I chose to let the border of the piece serve as the mat. The finished piece framed measures 16"x24"
