The LORD Is my Shepherd

He shall gather the lambs
With his arm
(a lamb on the rock) And carry them In his bosom

Julia Moore North Wing New Orphan House Ashley Down Bristol

The LORD Is my Redeemer


"In modern Britain, women of the working-class often practiced embroidery for economic reasons. In some orphanages in Bristol, young girls were taught embroidery. This particular style of beginner’s embroidery was called the Bristol Samplers. These samplers contained numbers and alphabets, alongside the girls' personal information. They became a kind of resume for when the girls grew up and looked for jobs as maids.

Many young women, even girls that weren’t from orphanages, left samplers behind. The most famous one is Elizabeth Parker's in the Victoria and Albert Museum. This sampler is embroidered with Parker’s story who had a miserable life and wanted to commit suicide. Opinions diverged about her fate. But it was belatedly revealed that she had lived a long life."
