Elizabeth Eaton 1712

ELIZABETH EATON 1712 This sampler was finished on the 21st of July in 1712. It was created with bold primary colors suggestive of Scottish embroideries, in silk and wool threads on a linen ground, using cross, eyelet, rice, queen, herringbone and double running stitches. The inscriptions are:

Remember thy creator in the days of thy youth. Anne Comberbeatch
Love the Lord and he will be a tender father unto thee

Possibly Anne Comberbeatch was Elizabeth Eaton's teacher. Very good color and condition, but with some losses to the wool stitches in a few areas 8-1/2" x 18", with frame 11" x 20-1/2"
