Judah Hayle samplers from The Scarlet Letter
This is three patterns in one folder were done by students of Judah Hayle in Ipswitch England. I have been fascinated with the story of Judah Hayle since I saw an article in the issue of SANQ. Last year I got the book by Edwina Ehrman about the Judah Hayle school from Needleprintthat has pictures of the samplers from the school that are extant and a history of Judah Hayle herself. It is a wonderful book, and just whet my appetite for a closer look at the samplers associated with this school. I am stitching a 'recreation' Judah Hayle that was published by Needleprint using a somewhat more modern pallet.
but I am anxious to start one of the repros too...I have had a fit of 'startitus' lately...I have started 4 new projects and am planning more. I need more hands...and more time to stitch.
Keep stitching ladies....
