Hold the phone!!
There is another partial sampler that looks like it is related to Jane Turner...this one by Mary Thomas Alias (?) Teethwell(?). Was Teethwell the town, or her last name? And why would she use 'Alias"? I have googled and come up blank so far. I will send the info along to Claire Browne and see if she has any ideas. I had this pic squirrelled away in my file on Jane Turner...
Evidently I found it here on this auction house site.
I had posted a pic, but the copyright statement on this site is particlarly harsh, so for now, just view it at the link..
Last night I stitched a corner of a room with 3722, a deep apricot taupe, and with 3328, a shade that is brighter and peachier, and now, tonight, for a stairwell bordering this juicy room, I put in 972.
Do you know 972?
This chrome is a yellow you could walk to China on, a bounty for which you could stamp your foot right through the floor when the princess, who`s been spinning strands of 972, inquires,"You like this color Rumpelstiltskin?"
I like this color, Princess.
For this majestic gold I will keep my temper. Stay here. Say you win. Be your servant, be your slave, just to keep in touch with all this egg-yolk yellow, just to keep my hands on all this glory stuff. ~ Stephen Beal
And what is a stitch for? To hold. It binds past to present,old country to new, generation to generation.
