From the cover: The verse on Sarah's sampler is "For the wages of sin is death but the gift of god is eternal through Jesus grist our lord." Part of the charm of this piece is the misspelling of Jesus Christ. Sarah's sampler originated from Wales and not only has the makers name, age, and date but also includes her teacher's name: Mrs. Matthias Cardigan. Other features of this sampler include several wonderful flower pots, a dog, birds, and a lion.

The finished size is 10 1/4" by 15 1/4".
