New Pattern: Proverbs

My dear friends, today I present you a very primitive pattern: PROVERBS...

Some months ago I red a wonderful book that I highly recommend to you all: The Daughter of the Heretic. This beautiful historical novel tells the story of a little girl lived at the time of Salem trials: her mother (Martha Carrier, women actually accused and executed for witchcraft) is a person of great character, as his father. Little Sarah and her cousin Margaret are very closed and in a dramatic moment something extraordinary happens... Sarah receive a piece of Sampler from her beloved cousin ... beautiful words describe this moment in the description of the author ... 

PROVERBS
order and info:  order@theprimitivehare.com
I found so beautiful this part of the novel, that I decided to dedicate it a sampler: I inserted the proverb, the initials of Sarah and the year that was, ideally, embroidered, the 1692. In the sampler of little Sarah I stitched the same words of one that Margaret stitched for her, the words of of the Proverbs of the Bible, 17:17: "A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity." 

Since only one pattern seemed little, I thought, why not stitch a couple? So, here come a second design, based on Proverb 18:22 ... dedicated to wives, real 'axis mundi' of house and family, guardians of the hearth and tradition, but also ingenuity, innovation, creativity ... We women: gifts of heaven! Have a great week (what's left of it) at all ...
