the decision has been made
its been a tough decision...
if I don't get this out of sight & out of mind
it will be on my frame
and then I'll have 3 relatively large pieces in the works...
Aren't her colors lovely?
The sampler is of Scottish origin and spent some of it's life hanging in the Ottersburn Gallery - Dumfries Scottland. Ann Sandles was 13 years old when she made her last stitch on this Adam & Eve themed sampler. Verse reads - Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees.
So... it is with some sadness that I shall pass this off to one of my stitchers, but at the same time, know it will be in good hands and stitched meticulously.
Watch for this antique reproduction chart in late Spring/early Summer.
Good Bye Ann.
