Here are a few more samplers to share with you. Some are really oldies, others are not. Excuse me for not crediting all the designers, a few I can't remember anymore. Again, sorry for the flash bounces.
Mary Slatter 1792 (the one with the glued on faces)
Katherine Jones, by The Exemplarery. I love the ribbon surrounding it.
Martha Smith, a real oldie from Scarlet Letter.
Freelove Hazard. The name cracks me up, sounds like a hippy chick from the 60's! Scarlet Letter.
M. Pollard, an Ackworth Sampler. Scarlet Letter.
The Dragonfly Sampler, love the verse! I think The Essamplaire. The wings of the dragonfly (lower left) are stitched in silver thread. I remember having to buy an entire price packet of metallic threads at Hobby Lobby just to get what I needed.
This goes way, way back, as evidenced by the l981 at the bottom. I can't remember where it came from, but it is a Newburyport, Mass. sampler, maybe Mary Starkey or Sharkey was her name. Maybe somebody else can remember.
Lois Minshall, Threads of Gold, I think. I made this as a Mothers Day gift.
Maria Theresa Wilkinson, Scarlet Letter. Love the verse about the "silly butterfly"
I hope you enjoyed looking, I enjoyed sharing them with you. I still have more... but need to get some things finished. We just missed another round of nasty storms...hope you all are safe.
