Plum Street Samplers ~ Dead Man's Chess (Oldie but Goodie!)
Stitch count: 201 x 201
This model was stitched on 32 ct. linen. The verse reads: "Remember me when this you see; my soul has risen to eternity." This design is a full-sized gaming board, featuring fragments of headstones in one direction and "stone" angels in the opposite direction. The border is comprised of many different tombstones, of which no two are alike. There is a square (tombstone) for personalization, and another for the date completed. The names and epitaphs in The Exhumeplary Collection are fictitious, with the exception of one: "Goody Martin" was one of the hanged victims in the Salem Witch Trials, and her descendants have given me permission to use her name.
