Hands Across The Sea Samplers ~ A Thomas 1882 "The Nellies"
Stitch count: 303 X 324
Anna, Angharad, or possibly Alwen? We shall never know as the young girl who finished this charming sampler on January 8th in the year 1882 did not record her Christian name. From the moment we first saw A Thomas’ sampler she has been affectionately called “The Nellies,” as her sampler features two elephants carrying howdahs.
