The posts about sampler verses are wonderful! As a Lit major, compiling the book "A Stitch in Rhyme" and working with Prof Tom McBride was a real pleasure. Erica's favorite verse was stitched on Sally Fiske's sampler ( collection of Old Sturbridge Village) and has always been one of my favorites. I hope that more of you will share your favorite verses, and use them on samplers where the original verse is not very appealing (ref: MARY HART). Not much progress to report from frigid Wisconsin except that I had to delete almost the entire chart of "Antonia" because I assumed the satin stitched borders were symmetrical, and they aren't. Fifteen hours of work, poof. However frogging manually is worse than frogging on the computer. Maybe.
I'd like to attach a photo of something but I'm computer-challenged. Back to Antonia now!
