Het lapje is gemaakt met vier verschillende soorten blauw. Dit kwam waarschijnlijk door de schaarste.
Het kan heel goed dat het lapje in etappes is gemaakt.
Jannie van Wageningen was born on September 23th. 1935, five years before WW 2. She went to school in Breukelen.She finished the sampler on March 11th. 1948. At the bottom she embroidered proudly "The Netherlands orange".
Four sorts of blue thread were used in this sampler. Probably, because at that time there was not much available.
It could well be that this sampler was made over a few years.
