WOW - what a stunning sampler.
This amazing sampler would look just as beautiful in your favourite colour, containing 32,057 stitches, you could set yourself a challenge to stitch the entire sampler but this 48 page booklet provides a resource of motifs and letters that you could incorporate into your own designs.
The booklet contains a historical background to the Bristol Orphanage and Reverend George Muller which is both interesting and also gives the sampler a significant place in the education of the children raised in the orphanage.
This sampler was completed by Mary Mountain in 1879, aged 10.
