          About the Sampler from Nicola Parkman:

          "Mary Woodward is certainly the smallest sampler Hands Across the Sea Samplers have reproduced, yet she has oodles of appeal and all the elements, in miniature, of a school girl sampler.

          A strawberry border undulates around an array of baskets filled with pretty flowers; butterflies and birds complete the charming scene. The motifs and colours Mary chose to stitch her sampler with work in harmony, recreating the froth of planting and rainbow of colours we see in a quintessential English cottage garden."
