From the cover: A fine Scottish sampler composed of several variations of undulating flowering bands that are worked in reds, greens and blues. The flowers, borders and dividing bands are worked in Montenegrin Stitch giving a heavy, dense appearance. Many of the flowers have filling stitches which adds dimension and texture to the band. The inscription reads: "In my begining God be my good speed In grace and vertve long to proceed Remember they creator in the days of they yovth Ann Sandford 1698" The final alphabet is worked in Eyelet Stitch over four linen threads.
