Elizabeth Parker’s Sampler – Victoria and Albert Museum

See on Scoop.itSpecialist Project

This embroidery, a confession by a young English woman, is unique in the Museum’s collection in its austerity and poignancy.

A very personal sampler containing emotion.  Samplers are usually simply a practice in embroidery, this one is an intimate story of a period in Elizabeth’s life.
