Good Art Right Here
Have you seen this Embloggery blog?
When we were in Maine in October, we saw a number of samplers at the museum, some of them over 200 years old. Even though samplers of that time had a formula (a little lettering, a little scripture, a picture of a house) they really spoke to me. Just to imagine time it took to complete one, on top of a busy day milking cows and making candles and tending sheep. It might have been a way to teach needlework, but I like to think it was also a way to give a busy woman some concentrated time to make art.
