MARY HAVENS, 1837
The overflowing urn of flowers and the faded colors of this sampler are what first caught my interest, but I was drawn in further by the details Mary Havens incorporated into her sampler and the balance of the composition.
The original is not in good condition, but was graciously loaned to me so I could reproduce it.
Watch for the companion set of smalls, available summer 2017.
