Today I am showing another favorite treasure...a very old cross stitched sampler done my great Aunt Freida. I've had this sampler for many years and finally had it framed about ten years ago. It now hangs in my dining room.
Can you see the date...1897!
My aunt was very young at the time she did this. She was born in 1886, so that makes her 11 when she stitched this sampler. There are some mistakes...if you look closely you'll notice that she has some of the alphabet out of order, but that's okay! I'll leave you with my aunt's favorite scripture verse today:
Job 19:25... I know that my Redeemer lives,
and that in the end he will stand upon the earth.
Thanks for stopping by!
