    The Scarlet Letter tells us: " Eleanor Holmes stitched this sampler when she was twelve years old using a variety of stitches including cross over one and two threads of linen, four-sided, eyelet, and cut and drawn work in the outermost border. She spelled her surname two different ways: Holmes near the top, and Holms in the lower left. Eleanor stitched two verses on her sampler:

    Lord thou art my hope no Trouble ear' shall move

    my Heart from thee how boundless is thy Love

    Lord tale my spirit thou cans't it ever guard

    And give me Heaven at last for my reward.

    This work in hand my friends may have When I am dead and laid in grave."

    The stitch count is 191w x 287h. The approximate design size is 13" x 19".

    The model was stitched on 30 count Lambswool linen using your choice of silk or cotton floss. Please check the boxes above to add these items to your order.
