Eliza Chace ~


Hello Friends & Folk ~

wanted to share a peek at a new aquisition to my ever-growing sampler collection...
please meet ~
"Eliza Chace"



I purchased her, initally because she was housed under glass in this wicker tray ~
unfortunately when she arrived, the glass was broken to bits...

but I cleaned up all of the glass and propped her up and I still love her....





I also chose her,
because I love anything B L U E and she sports thee most beautiful Indigo colored threads that she stitched her name and initials with....






I think the date at the bottom, '1818' was stitched at a later date and may represent a date of birth or other significant date...I don't think the sampler itself was stitched then...





I love the nubby linen and faded threads...
the alpahbet contains the letter "J" and there are loverly motifs scattered about as well...
(there us also the tiniest letter 'j' stitched on the right margin , nest to the tri-heart motif. The little 'j' was stitched almost as an afterthought, in a very pight thread that looks to me like it was once a brown or red color ~




All in all,
I'm very happy with her and she seems to be happy here in the old farmhouse with the other 'girls'...

I'll be even busier than usual this week,
so I might not be in here everyday as usual,
....but I will be checking on you all!!



Blessings from the farm,
Lori
