We have to thank Witney Antiques for today's giveaway notecards for a bunch of people. It is a closeup of an early 17th century whitework sampler. There are a few others very similar to this one and they were worked in the 1640s making them the earliest dated version. Look at this one from the Victoria and Albert Museum dated 1649.
If you are interested in a notecard, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and put WHITEWORK in the subject line. Then you name and mailing address in the bulk of the message.
Send it to me before midnight EST on Dec 23rd!
