The Bronte Samplers link

It is very early morning here on Friday for me and we are up getting ready to drive to Brugge, Belgium for the annual Lace Days. I decided to check my email and, of course, had to pop in here to check my comments. I love reading all of your responses!

I thought you might like the link for the Bronte samplers so you can see all three. They are hanging at the parsonage museum. They are sold in kit form there with the thread and linen being similiar to those which the sisters used themselves. The three sisters all stitched a sampler as a girl as did their mother in her time. To see these samplers which were reproduced by Moira Blackburn, go to http://www.moirablackburn.com/reproduction/repro_main.htm . I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
