|"Round is the ring that has no end, so is my love for you my friend. The rose is red, the violet blue; the time seems long since I seen you. Hannah Budd's sampler dated June the 8th in the year 1830. Katherine J. I. LaDue" This is the needlework message on this sampler. The new frame is size 10 by 7", and there is glass over the fabric. The fabric has soil and a couple of holes, and some of the embroidery silk colors have faded. After 173 years, all of these issues seem minimal for the endearing sentiment expressed.|
