Full of the sentiment of a wedding
day, this little sampler expresses it in
a delightful slightly humorous vein.
A white-satin-clad bride and a cor-
rcctly garbed bridegroom advance,
under an arch of roses held by them-
selves, over a field of flowers pre-
sumably into the state of matrimony.
A little church, a little home, orange
blossoms and doves bearing a myrtle
branch, symbol of Venus, are all in-
cluded in the design.
Instead of the words "the sweet
bride" and "the beloved one" in the
border, the actual names of the couple
are to be used.
3000-Wedding Sampler stamped on
light beige sateen. 12 by 16 inches,
floss and wool for embroidery, color
chart, and directions       $1.0X)
Size of worked picture 91 by 13 inches.

panion, Service Bureau, 250 Park
