Stitch count 253 X 282

Beth Twist says, "This sampler is an adaptation of an unfinished antique sampler stitched by Jane Charter in 1881. She appears to have stopped stitching her sampler shortly after her brother passed away at a young age. I was able to find Jane and her family through some ancestry research, and finished her sampler as I think she may have done, were she to continue. I finished stitching the names of her siblings, and used her motifs as well as motifs from other antique samplers of similar age and style to fill in the rest of the blank spaces."
