Behold Alas Our Days We Spend
How Vain they Are How Soon They End
May Useful Arts Employ My Youth
And Love of Virtue And Of Truth
That When the Fleeting Moments End
A Crown Immortal I May Find
Rebekah Hacker Is My Name And With My
Nedle I Work the Same In 10 year of My Age
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.
