A rare Irish sampler, stitched on linen with silk and wool threads. The linen has a dark horizontal line every ten threads. The stylized four sided floral and vine border surrounds two rows of unusually stylized alphabets, followed by two rows of cursive alphabets, above an eight line verse:
Sweet to look inward and attend
The whispers of his love
Sweet to look upward to the place
Where Jesus pleads above.
Sweet to reflect hos grace divine
My sins on Jesus laid
Sweet to remember that his blood
My debt of suffering paid.
Stitches used are cross and petit point. Excellent color and condition. 24″ x 17″,
