Walls for the wind and a roof for the rain and drinks beside the fire ~
laughter to cheer you and those you love near you and all that your heart desires.

Just for Steph....

I posted the detail from this sampler before, and Steph asked me what it was and if it had been reproduced. I found it again in my 'net travels'. It is in the Burrell Collection in Glasgow, Scotland. Called the Francis Cheyney sampler, it was stitched in 1664. It has been reproduced by The Essamplaire.I can`t believe I had forgotten where I had found it or that it had been repro`d by Margriet Hogue. It has been on my 'to do' list for quite some time. It`s a real beauty.
