Here's another little sampler that I finished not too long ago. It is a pattern by Kathy Barrick of Barrick Samplers, i.e. Carriage House Samplings, called "My Love I Give Thee". I stuffed it with wool in the tradition of antique pinkeeps so as to protect all of the pins and needles from rusting. This isn't much of a problem for us today but, in early times, pins and needles were far too precious to risk damaging. I really love the man and the woman in this one. Guess I have a thing for stitching couples!
