My husband is a funny man. When I showed him my latest finish, after he read the inscription he said to me in all seriousness, 'Muffins in Yerba?!'. I laughed at that and told him that no, it was not Muffins in Yerba, but in fact it was in fact 'Nullius In Verba', the motto of the Royal Society. I think it makes the piece more interesting than just a row of numbers. It also makes it different from most samplers in that the verse is not religious based, as was the custom for a great many samplers that our ancestors produced.
Still in all, I am happy with the way that it turned out. I am even happier that I am through with all of the Au Ver a Soie Soie 100/3 Spun Silk in 663 is finally over! :)
