Thursday treasures

 

I thought I would share with you all a sampler that was made by great great grandmother (I think I got that right!). It’s been passed down our family over the generations and what makes this sampler all the more impressive for me – is that it was made in 1884 and it’s in very good condition. ¬†She was also only 12 when she made this sampler! To me that’s amazing, as there is no way I could have done the same at that age…

 

It doesn’t quite look cross-stitch when you look at it closely but it is some sort of embroidery/tapestry on a cream background.
