An easy-to-stitch American house sampler from 1808. The wide layout is really nice and the modernistic design elements are really unusual. Sally was only 10 years old when she created this little beauty. The soft muted silks are such a delight and make stitching this sampler a real joy. The original was stitched with silk on linen. A picture of the original is in the chart.
