The Jane Austen Sampler kit is a cross-stitch adaptation of an 18th Century embroidery – the text reads
Praise the Lord o my Soul and all that is within me
Praise his Holy name.
The design of the this kit is based on precise details taken from Jane Austen’s Sampler and adapted for an oval composition.
Although the date on the actual sampler reads 1797 it is thought that this altered from 1787 which would have indicated Jane did the stitch work at the age of 12.
