This sweet sampler was wrought by a 7 year old on December 7, 1847. Susan Orr used mostly a slate blue but she also stitched in an ecru plus a dash of coral. Her sampler included an alphabet, numbers 1-10, and a poem which reads: "The morning flowers display their sweets, And gay their silken leaves unfold. As careless of the noon tide heats, As fearless of the evening cold." She misspelled December and there are a few stitches missing in spots. The border is lovely. I can't tell if it's on linen or silk but that fabric has some age toning. The piece is framed in a simple black wooden frame which has scuffs; the entire piece is 15 5/8 by 11 1/2 inches.
