Adam and Eve Sampler

Here is a sampler I purchased some years back and had forgotten totally about.   It is Adam and Eve and unfortunately the name is gone.  It is quite bright.  The sampler was wrought in 1834, and has some religion advice.  I can't say this is my favorite Adam and Eve.  It does have some wonderful motifs.

I found this previous little sampler I had saved when I had time to reproduce it.  Catherine Staley wrought this sampler in December of 1842.  She has words of wisdom:

          The loss of time is much
          The loss of truth is more
          The loss of Christ is such
          That no man can restore

Here are a few sneak peeks as I am reproducing it:

What do you think?  Do you like the verse?

Hi everyone,

Just received an updated pic of the Richards Sampler from my model stitcher.  I really like how this is coming along, especially the grass.  The grass will be satin stitched over the cross stitch for the best coverage.  What do you think?
