These pictures include a tree, animal-like figures and various designs. In the center is a quote about living life. The quote is somewhat hard to read due to flawed stitches in the making of the sampler. Roughly reads Remember thy creatou in the days of thy youth while the evil days come nor the years draw nigh when thour halt ray have no pleasure in them. ” Below the quote reads “Honour to your parents give us long as you on Earth do live.
