1863 must have been a good year Astrid... i love it... did you cross-stitch your signature before you took the picturegrin
....petersmile
Picturit: I took out my needle point to do the signature, I hope nobody notices in the Museum wink
Most of the time these samples show the date when it is made. My mom did one for Jeroen, 1988... and all the details have a meaning, very interesting.
Astrid.
I LOVE that you even saw this at the museum, MLMA, let alone thought to take a picture of it! And I really love how you did your signature!!! smile
Picturit: This was at a wall in the house with the man up front with the klompen at the boat making wharf. I could not resist in taking this shot.

Oh, I admire how you did cross-stitch your signature - a wonderful find in the museum! My Mom did cross-stitch, too, and I still own a cushion made by her.
Picturit: I did a lot of cross-stitching myself, I just love it, very therapeutic. I saw the cushion your Mom made, it is beautiful.

Looks like an early computer game Lady P
Picturit: HA, I never looked at it that way, you might be right..
Astrid.
You are sew talented with the needle and thread, my dear. LOL
Picturit: Thank you 'sew' much grin.... as a matter of fact I am wink

I like the simplicity of this Astrid.
Picturit: That is what caught my eye. To have a boat like that in cross-stitch is amazing.

Cross-stitching. When we were sick as children, my mother bought us the necessary and then you had to make a drawing on the linen and complete it with cross-stitching. It was a great pastime when you had to stay in bed.
Picturit: I know, we use to have these small projects too and even we made postcards with it. A fun thing to do when you are sick and want something to do.
Astrid.
What a charming image for Boat Friday, Astrid. These samplers can be very valuable and I imagine this one would cost an arm & a leg. Love your cross-stitched signature!
Picturit: Thank you Beverly. I know these samplers are so wonderful, I have my Grandma's sampler from 1911, a small one, but still.
