About the Sampler from Nicola Parkman:

"Hannah is most certainly a “bobby dazzler” of a sampler. The sampler catches and holds the eye. The young girl covered every inch of her linen, filling her sampler with carefully stitched motifs. The intricate outer border is one that we have not seen on a sampler before.

Hannah divided her sampler into three sections. The top section dominates with a stunning lozenge- shaped cartouche within which she has worked two alphabets and a set of numerals. The larger font appears on several Quaker samplers.

Hannah records on her sampler that she was from Ballypallady (sic). In Ireland counties are divided into civil parishes and parishes are further divided into townlands. Ballypalady Townland can be found in Ballymartin in the county of Antrim, Northern Ireland."
