Adam and Eve Samplers

One of the favorite themes in antique samplers is Adam and Eve. I thought I'd put up a few of the photos I've collected of these samplers and hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I do.

I just love Adam and Eve samplers and have stitched about five so far with two more on scroll rods to be finished. I'd love to have a whole wall of them. But some of the ones you posted I've never seen before. Do you have the names of them?

I'm stitching Ann Carter right now...a reproduction sampler with Adam and Eve on it - in my humble opinion, it is gorgeous. I'm working on an entire sampler wall of nothing but Adam and Eve's. Then I'm moving on to Noah :) Love, love, love looking at all your photos you've collected. They all are wonderful aren't they?
