Where Liberty Dwells Huswife...........Heartstring Samplery

The quote, "Where liberty dwells there is my country" has been attributed to Benjamin Franklin, however no evidence has been found verifying this, but Beth felt it was a great quote whoever said it and used it as the basis for this huswife.  For those who are unfamiliar with what a huswife is, according to the Reformed Presbyterian Magazine, September 1, 1864, "it is a long piece of cloth with a number of small pockets sewed along one side, and made to fold up like a pocket book, having separate places for buttons, thread, needles, pins, & etc, such as some of you may have seen your mothers or grandmothers use."  The model is stitched on R & R Reproductions 36 ct. Old Mill Java using Weeks Dye Works: Parchment, Sandcastle, Dirt Road, Grape Vine, Fathom, Moss and Red Rocks.  

Finished design size is approx. 13 3/4" x 4"
