This sampler is a fanciful adaptation of 19th century American and English sampler motifs. Fluffy white sheep are outstanding on a large green lawn that stretches between two elegant red brick houses that are flanked by flying eagles. Needlework pictures of this type can be considered as traditional samplers, using the definition of a sampler established by Ethel Stanwood Bolton and Eva Johnston Coe in American Samplers: A piece that is signed and dated by its creator.
