Sarah Steel, 1772...Full Reveal! :-)

Thank you all so much for those of you that commented on the sneak peeks that I posted last week! They are appreciated more than you know! I have decided that because the St Charles Cash and Carry Market is next weekend, that you deserve a chance to see a full reveal of both of my new releases!

The following is Sarah Steel, 1772, as truly reproduced as I could get to Sarah's beautiful sampler, from the 1700's! I was taken with her dear 'deer', the special sweet colorful birds flying around, the spies of Canaan, her trees and alphabet! Also she practiced her alphabet at the top...I dearly love the use of red in the one alphabet and also in her signature lines. Wondering if red was a favorite of 11 year old Sarah...I am thinking yes! Her instructor, Jane Hollamby must have been so proud of Sarah and her efforts and the Bible verse must have been of special meaning to such a young girl. I do hope that you like Sarah!

Thanks in advance for taking the time to share what you think of Sarah...I will be sharing pics of my other sampler being released this weekend! Anna M's Teach Me, An Antique Revival!

My fondest thoughts to you, my readers! Love, Jan
