who asked me to do this. Two of the bands amongst the plethora on this sampler come from Johannes Sibmacher's pattern book, maybe you can see the parrots and, below, the huntsman and hound in pursit of the stag, in the lower half of the picture.
And the other great bonus is that the newly come-to-light Judith Hayle sampler stitched by Martha Cussen in 1696 will be included in this volume also. You can see the auction image here, however new images have been specially commissioned for the book. It is all getting very exciting - but I must go to bed now and look forward to another happy, busy day tomorrow!
