This sampler was made by Lucy V. Moore in 1865 at the Osage Academy. As nearly as I can read from the faded letters, J. A. Scobey was her tutoress and the sampler was done in July. The sampler has her parents' names along with different renderings of the alphabet, numbers, and probably items of interest to Lucy
Across the top the alphabet and numbers. Below, various flowers, a rectangle bearing animals, a tree and blossoms. The lower half divided into rectangular areas bearing chevron motifs worked in various stitches. Polychrome silk yarns on linen ground. Condition good; black rotted out in spots. Stitches: Florentine, rococo, tent, two-sided Italian cross, upright gobelin, slanting gobelin.
