A sampler from the Sheldon Museum in Middlebury, Vermont.
There is supposed to be an article in Antiques
Magazine (8/1969) "The Furnishings of a Vermont Family"
about Polly + her husband's purchases from
an almanac she kept. I haven't seen this article +
haven't tracked down the magazine (yet).
The sampler is on 35-ct linen using DMC floss
(4 colors: Ecru, 372, 932, + 898).
The stitch count is 168 x 76.
The sampler was stitched when Polly was 7 yrs old. Charming how the
'n' is stitched along the side motif.
c.1990 The Scarlet Letter
