12 year old Emily Tufton created this vibrant sampler when she was living in Bath, England. The majority of the sampler utilizes Cross Stitch over 2 with the exception of the Cross Stitch over 1 'On Christmas' verse and Emily's name. I have included my research on dress maker Emily's life with some photos of places she knew well.  Emily's story had many ups and downs and I hope that Emily found comfort and peace along the way.
