Eliza Hendrson

1806

Hawick

Description:

This sampler is very typical of the Hawick girls, including "On Virtue". Eliza's house is quite pink, a bit narrowly depicted and is surrounded by willow trees. The front lawn is very fluffy chenille; so often the texture is lost over time. She also has the traditional flowering vine anchored in the center with a large single flower. Eliza's signature at the bottom is done in a curlicue alphabet and she has provided a plethora of familial initials (FT, ID, JH, FT, AH, JH, FH, JH, FT, BM, WT, AI, AW, BT, JT, ID, WK, IW) on either side of the willow trees.

Size (W x H): 12 1/2 x 17 inches

Stitches: Cross, satin, chain, cross-over-one

Media: Silk on linen

Verse:

ON VIRTUE

VIRTUe is the chiefest beauty of the MiNd
The Noblest ORNaMeNt of humankind
VIRTUe is ouR safeguard and our guidiNg star
That luRs uP ReasoN wheN OUR senses eRR
