"I was fortunate to obtain two samplers stitched by this young English needleworker, Elizabeth Hunt. This sampler was stitched when she was just seven years old! The other sampler was stitched when she was six, amazing! I'm thinking I was still trying to put doll clothes on farm cats at that age! Yeah, that never was successful! ;) The sampler from her sixth year is charted and will be a future release. I will have both of Elizabeth's samplers in my suite in Nashville for you to take a peek at. It's fun to see her progression as a young needleworker. The earlier sampler is just as impressive as the one I am presenting here. Both samplers are the same size and make a stunning display when hung side by side. Great conversation pieces as well!" - Brenda Gervias
