My great grandmother was Mary Jane Baker, born in Liverpool, England in 1870, of Irish parents.
She came to New York with her parents and brothers when she was 3 years old.
When I saw The Mary Baker Sampler, I knew I had to stitch it! Of course, this Mary Baker is not a relative of mine, but I thought it would be fun to have her name on my wall.

Here is the photo I took of my progress the other day:
I am using DMC on 30 count linen. The piece of linen didn't seem to be that big, so I chose to start in the center and work my way up.
Most of the sampler is stitched in green and red, with a touch of pink. The verse is stitched in black.
This seems to be a very quick stitch. I have already made more progress. I will be back in a few days with another photo.
I almost forgot the TUSAL! This month went so very quickly!
All the red and green on the top is from Mary Baker.
