Hey guys! I'm going to have 2 reproduction samplers at Nashville and this is one of them. Carol Sims stitched the model (thanks Carol!) And Bonnie from Valley Framing, once again did an awesome job with the moulding! (thanks Bonnie!)
I love this sampler so much! Mary was only 8 years old when she stitched this. How incredible is that! She finished it on Oct.31 1844. The original resides in Allhallows Museum in Honiton England. There is also a way cool, kinda spooky story about it too! (You will have to buy the sampler to find out though)
So, in my mind this sampler is about as perfect as you can get~It is beautiful, it was finished on All Hallows Eve and it's home is Allhallows Museum!
I would like to thank the museum for the opportunity to pay tribute to Mary and her samplar.
