I think I have needlework on the brain! These are from a lovely little book I picked up the other day ~ Samplers from A to Z (Museum of Fine Arts Boston, 2000). The first exhibition I ever worked on was of early American samplers, held at the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum in Norwalk, Connecticut. Anyway, these pieces inspire me to pick up my needlepoint again.

Oh, and many thanks to Style Court for the lovely mention of the historic house tours! I am in the process of putting together the Fall tour schedule, and I am really excited about it ~ there are some fun places on the list. So, stay tuned...
