    Picked this item up from a donation shop. Couldn't stand to lose it to the trash. Couldn't find any history on the name. It's about 8x12 or so...

      Interesting. I wonder why the popularity to re-create her pattern, specifically?

      And such a great OLD sampler!
      Amazing to see such marvelous work made by a child, nowadays no occidental youngsters would be willing to do this ;-D
