Swedish Samplers On-Line

The Digitaltmuseum has 72 Swedish samplers on line now.
Here are just  a couple of examples to whet your appetite - to see more click here.
I was very interested to see these 16th century stitched panels with subjects so closely resembling the stitched Stuart panels seen in England. Above is Abraham's Sacrifice.
And above here is Abraham Entertaining The Angels.
And finally I had to show you this embroidered panel which is an absolute delight and a great favourite of mine.
