Taken from antique samplers this 6.5 x 6.5 sampler consists of borders and motifs from 6 samplers all dated in the early 1800’s, from the Portsmouth museum in the UK. The outer borders are primarily in pinks and greens with touches of cream silk threads. The two motifs, a stag and a bird are stitched in brown. The two butterflies in brown and cream. There is a two tone cartouche for your name and date. Below that two further borders of birds and flowers. This sampler has Cross Stitch and Satin Stitches making this sampler a quick to stitch.
