There were some new vendors this year, one of which was Lianne van Leyen of 1897 Schoolhouse Samplers. I met Lianne at last year's fair and she had brought in one of her antique samplers that she was creating a cross stitch pattern for. This year she was back with her own booth selling her patterns. I'd been following Lianne's progress on Instagram and she accomplished so much in the last year getting her samplers in multiple shops. When I visited her booth she was in the process of acquiring a new antique sampler for her collection.

The first one is a freebee from Lianne van Leyen of 1897 Schoolhouse Samplers called Louisa Acton, Age 11. I'm doing it on 40 count Heritage Newcastle Linen from Picture this Plus, I think.
I'm using Classic Colorworks: Barn Doo, Cocoa Bean, Dublin Bay, Ye Olde Gold and Weeks Juniper. Initially, I thought I would use Pea Pod but, I didn't like it so I ripped it out and started with the Juniper and I think I like it better.
