Marcy Hay, at age 11, worked this charming little solidly stitched sampler, while attending school in the Boston
area, possibly Charlestown. The center section is a surprising complex picture depicting a little sheppardess with
a staff standing by a tree, a spotted turtle, a black sheep, a white sheep, a squirrel climbing the tree, and a
giant parrot. The alphabets, numerals, inscription, are surrounded with a four sided flowering vine border.
