Amelie Lambert stitched her sweet sampler in the year 1844. We see from her sampler the love she had for her parents and just adore the precious pup waiting for Amelie to return home. The sampler was probably her first effort as a young schoolgirl. Often similar samplers were stitched as a precursor to more elaborate samplers.
