Hands Across the Sea Samplers tell us: "After an extensive search we have traced 4 Hannah Coates born in 1833. All were christened in York, England during the reign of King William 1V.
A meandering pink dianthus border surrounds Hannah’s sweet pastoral sampler. A grand red brick house nestles between 2 large colourful birds perched atop trees. A shepherd and shepherdess with their Lancashire Heelers stand watch over a pasture full of sheep, lambs and deer. Two trumpeting angels signifying the word of God, hover over the house. Urns and vases of flowers abound.
The verse reads: "This work I've done to let you see
The care my parents took of me
When I am dead and in my grave
I hope this piece of work youll save
Jesus in Death Remember me"
This charming sampler is rated as BEGINNER but will be an enjoyable project for all abilities. The stitches used are cross stitch over two threads with the verse stitched in cross stitch over one thread."
