I wanted to share with you the antique sampler I was lucky enough to buy today.
I am very grateful to Marsha who gave me useful advice and guided me with the value.
I have always preferred to stitch a sampler rather than to buy an original but I could not resist these two ladies. I must think up some names for them - any suggestions.
The verse appealed too.
The border is a feast for the eyes with the brightly feathered birds.
I have tried to find Miss Parr on ancestry and could only find one Eleanor born in 1856 but alas not in October. This could be her married name. I would love to find out more about her.
