Very nice. How marvelous that there is information available on Polly. I wonder what her 7-year-old self would think about her work being replicated and posted online for all to enjoy.

Nice finish and history of needle worker

Lelia said...

Thx to needleworkers who commented. I adore alphabet stitching. I, too, wonder while stitching about the person who stitched the original piece - what their life was like, whether they enjoyed their samplers, their pattern, their possible teacher/instructor, etc.

I figured it wouldn't take you long to finish this lovely sampler.

Congratulations on your lovely finish! I also love the alphabet samplers. Have you decided on your next sampler?

Lelia said...

Thx. I have not selected my next project - probably won't have time until January. I enjoy all the family festivities and usually don't stitch until things quiet down!
