|The original of this
design is a very interesting sampler. Although it is undated, we have reason
to believe it was probably worked in a school setting. On page 9 of House
and Garden Samplers by Mary Jenkins is a sampler very similar to this,
dated l838 and stitched by Mary Hale.
This sampler is stitched in cross and satin stitch, with a verse stitched over one thread. Our model was stitched on 40 count Cottonfields linen with silk floss in shades of rose, green, brown, tan and rust, and is very true to the original.
Finished size on 40 count is 13" x 16".
Let praise to our shepherd begin
