A New England (possibly New Hampshire) sampler with multiple borders surrounds an upper reserve with alphabets and the attribution, above a fanciful scene depicting a sheep and a bull facing off on opposite mountaintops. The original sampler has quite a lot of freehand, satin and stem stitch work, which is how we stitched our model; however, instructions and graphs are also provided for stitching the entire sampler in just cross stitch (it looks wonderful either way).

The more challenging and authentic version requires cross, freehand, and counted satin, stem filling, backstitch, French knots, while the simpler version requires just cross, and counted thread satin stitches.

Origin and date: New England, 1763
Rated: Beginning
Linen count and finished size: 30 count, 11-1/2"x15-1/4"
