Carline Johnson worked a delightful sampler. A bright red berry vine surrounds fruit baskets and a pair of fair-haired children with puffy sleeve dresses. The gigot sleeves came into fashion in the 1820's, then became more popular in the 1830's. The girls are holding carnations in their hands; what Barbara affectionately refers to as pom-poms. Shade trees flank the manor house, along with devoted puppies.A roof top garden crowns the hall. Stitch count 166 x 155.
