http://collections.aucklandmuseum.com/ontology/core/researcherComments Stylistic information: detail in motifs suggests influence of Berlin woolwork/Continental-type of patterns, very popular in Victorian times. Who does she love?
http://collections.aucklandmuseum.com/ontology/core/researcherComments Structure/Planning: Stitched top row of alphabet, then added border to top and LH side. Next, remaining rows of alphabet and motifs which form dividing band. Signature line next. Then motifs carefully placed around first vertical axis (2 largest birds), followed by 4 larger floral motifs in corners and remaining med-sized birds, filling in remaining space with smallest motifs. RH and lower border added (and "fudged at corner") when work is "complete". Verse probably added just before final borders added. Completed sampler has been hemmed.
http://collections.aucklandmuseum.com/ontology/core/researcherComments Maybe this is the second piece in a series, the first being T1062, also by Emma Weston ("True to Thee"). She has begun T1062 by using some of the same motifs, but has misplaced the motifs on the linen by not paying attention to symmetry and balance, and hasn't left room for alphabets or signatures. This sampler "I love you" corrects those "failings", and consequently has been completed.

http://erlangen-crm.org/current/P3_has_note One of five pieces of embroidery executed by Mrs Gifford (nee Emma Jane Weston) when a child and brought by her to New Zealand in 1884. description: sampler, fine linen/cotton, embroidered in greens, blues, reds, alphabets and numerals, many motifs (large and small), signed, dated, and placed. Script: "I LOVE YOU" "Emma Weston Marked in Woodhouse Age 13 1876" Emma Jane Gifford (nee Weston) b. 1863 In June 1937 a small collection of samplers and needleworking gear was presented to the Old Colonists Museum by Mr L.F. Rudd, Barrister and Solicitor, on behalf of Mr S. Gifford. The record stated that they were " brought to New Zealand in 1884 by Mrs Gifford nee Emma Jane Weston" and included five pieces of embroidery "executed by her". Currently the only information we have on Emma Jane Gifford is derived from the Museum accession record and from her needlework. What we do know reads like a set of clues. It is obvious that Emma Jane Weston was an excellent needleworker. We also know that she was born about 1863 and at 13 years of age she lived at Woodhouse in England. Then in 1884, aged 21, she came to New Zealand and at some stage married Mr. S Gifford. It is probable that the Giffords lived in or near Auckland. Emma's husband, S Gifford probably died about 1937, when this collection was presented to the Old Colonist's Museum and it is quite likely that Emma Jane died some time before him. Emma Jane Gifford's name is not recorded in either the Births, Marriages, Deaths index held by Auckland Museum or the Public Library shipping index for 1884. However, this lack of information is not unusual as official records often referred to women simply as wife of, daughter of, or family of. In Emma's case we have one or two yet unexplored avenues to investigate and hope to learn more about Emma Jane Gifford (nee Weston) in future.
