Abra was just eleven when she completed her sampler. She was from Sebec, Maine and stitched her work in a striking color scheme that highlights her stitching skills. The verse is charming and romantic for a young girl.
O let my name engraven stand
Both on thy heart and on thy hand
Set me upon thine arm and were
That pledge of love forever there.
This is not a precise reproduction but still remains true to Abra's original work. The chartpak includes detailed instructions and diagrams for all portions of the sampler, including eyelets, bargello, free-hand stitching and the saw tooth border.
