|My version - Salley Morse c.1795|
From the Hope R Hacker Sampler Collection
Allentown Art Museum Allentown PA
I started this sampler over 20 years ago. So much going on with a move and two young children...
When I pulled it out (thanks to the wonderful encouragement here) I discovered I had reversed the color in the alphabets.
Well, I'm going with it! Stitching instead of spending the time to rip and restitch.
I've been working on it a bit each day - Salley and I made peace. I can see the end is near. After all, the chart says, "Naive and somewhat asymmetrical sampler such as this, small mistakes will not be apparent"
This weekend I saw a frame at the local antique shop that just might work....
