Barbara Ana Designs - The Snooty Parrots Sampler



The Snooty Parrots Sampler model was stitched on 40 ct Vintage Examplar Linen (alternate fabric listed below)

Threads used: Gentle Art

Stitch count: 248 x 329

Surrounding the poem are the two "snooty parrots" each perched on a tree. The sampler features many interesting motifs including trees of life, Adam & Eve, and an exquisite countryside scene with several characters and animals.
Designed in the manner of an antique late18th century sampler it features a beautiful little ode by Samuel Wesley as a centerpiece:

No glory I covet, 
no riches I want
Ambition is nothing to me
the one thing I beg from Kind Heaven to grant
Is a mind independent and free
