Samplers in Salem

Okay I was actually looking at woodworking sites, but I came across the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts (MESDA and saw a couple of delightful samplers by the Gould sisters – amazing work for ones so young

There’s a lot more to see – lovely period furniture in abundance on the MESDA site

Happy to hear that Sharon is on the mend. Take care of yourself. Looking forward to more interesting stitches and challenges on Sharon’s blog.

Jerry, how wonderful of you to take care of things while Sharon was under the weather! The samplers you found are beautiful — I am from the Eastern Shore of Maryland, although I now happily reside in TX. I recognize the family names, although not the works per se, but I’m going to send a copy of this to my mother (who still lives there) and see what else she can discover. Thanks BUNCHES!!!
