1714 to 1723 Dutch embroidery sampler by "F.S." in Friesland, Netherlands. In 1714, somewhere in the southwest corner of Friesland, a girl began to embroider this sampler. She continued the work until 1723, completing the alphabet 10 times. Very often a sampler remains unfinished because girls got other occupations or because they had practiced enough.
