E. Vandenherreweghen 1890

Origin: Belgium
Stitch Count: 304 x 292
Stitches: Cross Stitch & Running Stitch

Linen: Model stitched on 35/36 count linen using DMC stranded cotton.

Samplers from European countries give expression to the bonds with Christian values. E. Vandenherreweghen placed her motto "All for Jesus" in the center design of this fine school sampler through which it is divided into two equal sections. Seven alphabets share the top section and she eternalized her name, the exact date and her motto. She set the initials of parents and other relatives into the cartouche. She crowned the letters "M" and "J" in the corners of the lower portion, they likely represent Mary and Joseph – the crown symbolizes eternal life. Two simple darning exercises illustrate her skill in this technique.

This sampler originates from Belgium. The piece is 40cm wide and 37cm high and is part of the great collection of Har and Mariëtte Verheggen-Penders in the Netherlands.
