Saint Lukes Artisan's Fair Laurel Challenge

At last! I can do a Laurely thing!

Okay, here is my challenge for Saint Lukes Artisan's Fair.

Are you guys game?

"Create a Sixteenth Century embroidery sampler.
Include a brief history of these types of samplers, as
well as the uses for these stitches in practical
terms. Explain what kinds of materials and stitches
you used, and how they would compare to a period
example.

"The sampler does not need to be a reproduction of an
existing one. Originality can be achieved by doing it
in the style of these samplers, with stitches that
were used at the time, without being an actual copy."
