About the Sampler from Nicola Parkman:

"Agnes’ sweet sampler is worked mainly in red and green, and follows the Scottish practice of recording family initials. Three sets of initials are stitched with black thread which indicated that those relatives were deceased. We have found Agnes in family history records and the pdf download includes information about her and her family."
