Nicola had asked us to post any antique samplers we might have and I thought I would post 2 of "my girls". Both have a lot of detail to them and they did use a variety of stitches. Mary did her's on fine hanky like linen and Maria did hers on 25 or 30 ct linen. I just wish I knew the history of them.
We're headed to Beaufort NC to see Blackbeard's Museum so I packed a Scarlet Letter's Eliza Hall of 1795 to take with and start. It's a miniature so will be easy to take.
I went to 2 book stores trying to get the book Marsha recommended but they didn't have it so ended up buying her other book Burning Bright takes place in 1792 London.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
