1836 Louisa Horsey Sampler Kickstarter Project

I will do a market update soon, but wanted to share with you my new Kickstarter Campaign to purchase and reproduce the 1836 Louisa Horsey sampler.  I found this sampler two days ago on the Internet and was captivated by its beauty, quality, and heart.  The campaign will help me come up with the funds to purchase the sampler, which is on hold at the dealer's. (I only need 69 people at the $25 level to fund the project; if I receive more than my goal, participants at the $10, $25 and $40 levels will receive extra gifts!)

I'm always looking for new samplers to reproduce, but I have certain things that I look for.  I love pieces with unusual elements and fun motifs.  Samplers with more than just plants and flowers are fun to stitch, and this one has lots to love: a shepherd and shepherdess, folk art angels, an unusual border, a gorgeous urn, and a host of animals, including birds, sheep, a dog, butterflies, bugs and bunnies and more.

In the above picture, you can see what a treat it will be to stitch the border, as the flowers alternate, including a flower with a lovely navy blue coloring, still bright after almost two centuries.

If you look closely at the bottom border, you'll find two figures tucked inside.  The shepherd and shepherdess are wearing beautiful clothes, and would you look at that man's fantastic calves?

The sampler does have a somber tone, focusing on the death of dear brother Henry, who died the day he was born.  But the verse is hopeful, and I admire this girl for dedicating many, many hours to creating this one-of-a-kind sampler.

Follow this link: to read more about the project and the rewards for participation.  People who contribute $10, $25 or $40 will receive rewards in the mail (at $25 and $40, you receive the graph to stitch the sampler.)  I have one month from today to raise the funds.  Thanks for your help!

Thank you for this beautiful post and you have been really doing great things with your blog, Did anyone here know that medical scientists have discovered a new way to battle hiv aids by using a man called dr itua. My name is Maria Lucia from California.i saw a comment on positive blogs and i will love to tell everybody how my status changes to negative and i got cured, and am now a living witness of it and i think it's a shame on me if i don't share this lovely story with other people infected with this deadly virus. hiv has been ongoing in my family, i lost both parents to hiv. and it is so much pain I've not been able to get over. As we all know medically there is no solution to it..and medication is very someone introduced me to a herbal practitioner in africa, i had a job there to execute so i took time to check out on him.i showed him all my tests and results. I was already disorganized with hiv and it was already taking its toll on me..
I had spent thousands of dollars so I decided to try him out. Although I didn't believe in it, I was just trying it out of frustration? and after 14 days, he told me to go for a medical test. and you won't believe that 5 different doctors confirmed that I am was like a dream,,I never believed hiv has a now negative, am a living witness..i don't know how to thank this man? I just want to help others in any way I can. I have joined many forums and have posted these testimonies and a lot of people have emailed and called this man on the phone and after 14 days they all confirmed negative. BBC news took it live and everybody saw it and it's now out in papers and magazines that there is a herbal cure for HIV and all with the help of this man, if you wish to take it or not.god knows i have tried my best. About 28 people have been confirmed negative through the herbal cure of dr itua and they send mails to thank me after they have been confirmed negative,,this man is real..don't miss this chance,,hiv is a deadly virus,,get rid of it now. if there is anyone who has similar problem and still looking for a way out, his email still remains or call or whatsapp him on +2348149277967 doctor itua can as well cure the following disease:- hiv/aids, herpes,cancer, als,hepatitis b,diabetes or visit his herbs store
