Julia Bird stitched her Sampler in 1890 “To my Mother“. She used the popular sentiment “Home Sweet Home” as her theme, and included motifs of – Mother standing at the door of the home, kettles, and pet dogs as well as a number of birds – a reminder of her surname, perhaps. This Sampler has been conserved by being hand sewn onto natural unbleached Irish linen, before being framed and glazed.
