 A Bristol Orphange Sampler

A sampler worked in the Muller New Orphan Homes of Bristol, England. There are a few Bristol orphanage samplers around and they are interesting as they all have the same elements but each with the maker's own personal arrangement giving it her stamp.

This one measures in stitches  282w x 312h and the original was worked on 60# linen. Such fine linen is no longer available but you can choose whatever you like to work on best. the finer the better.
