Here is Grazing Sheep framed, unfortunately I had to leave her at the framers as he had managed to trap a piece of white cotton (I think from the stretching) between the sampler and the glass and this will need to be removed.
Sheep make such nice motifs on samplers and when you stop and think so many samplers feature animals or birds.
Marsha has written a book about this subject "Animals From Early Samplers"
Do you have a favourite animal that you like to stitch or a favourite sampler featuring animals.
Leave a comment on this post to enter the draw for a copy of the book. I will draw a name in a fortnight.
