I used Umbrage 3469 (DMC 975) to backstitch the mouths for Adam and Eve.

This is not an exact reproduction of Elizabeth Buck’s sampler—for one, I cannot see the back of the work, and there is
some stitch loss in the original sampler. As well, I found that if I copied some things exactly, they looked quite different on
modern evenweave. I gave up fairly early on and decided to make mine an “interpretation”. Please feel free to make
changes as you see fit.

You will see a fair bit of difference between the colors chosen by Elizabeth Buck and me. I tried, but I found I just couldn’t
use the bright bubble-gum pink that she used for Adam and Eve, and when I changed that color to more of a peach, I found
I had to change the entire palette to more earth-tones. I love the end result, but of course, you should choose the colors you

This was a very fun (and fast) stitch—and we’d love to see your interpretations!
