DD's first embroidery (she's 4).

I was pretty impressed with her needleship until I looked up what girls were doing 150 years ago.





This sampler has faded a lot but it was made by a six year old called Emily in 1858. I wonder if she could even properly read what she was stitching?







Actually I'm still impressed with DD's. She picked out the colours herself and there's an interesting composition going on there...

You should frame it! Has she tried the "strikkelise" ? I don't" know the English word for it, but you can see it in this post (in Norwegian...): http://magfly.blogspot.com/2006/03/strikkelisetider.html
