If you go to: and look at the February 15th blog entry, there's a really cool sampler stitched by a boy named James Wilson (looks like early 1800's). You can purchase the graph using Paypal, and they'll send you the chart via PDF file. I just ordered one. SO COOL! The proceeds go directly to the museum. Don't-cha just love those squirrels?

I love love love this sampler. Of course one of the big reasons is because a boy stitched it. Being a male stitcher and designer is hard today. I can't even imagine how it was for him in the 1800's.

I love this sampler as well - so much so that I ordered it a couple of months ago and now have the pattern saved on a CD. I'm going to be purchasing fabric for it in a month or two and while I really can't start it this year due to other commitments, it's going to be very hard not to pull it out at some point and put at least a few stitches in it!!! I do pull it up from time to time and just ponder all the cool things on it.

Erik, you should get this chart. The cost is reasonable and you'll have the same connection that the rest of stitcher's feel when we do a reproduction sampler!
