Mary Bailey 1818 by The Scarlet Letter
The greatest King on earth and meanest Slave,
For worldly Pomp are equal in the grave,
Only the pious actions of the Just,
At the Last Day shall Blossom in the Dust.
Stitches used in the sampler are cross, petit point and counted satin.
Marsha has been reproducing samplers longer than pretty much anyone. I was lucky to tour her farmstead back in the 90s, and it continues to be a memorable day. Her reproduction charts are thorough, and come with stitch diagrams.
