Gilbert Stuart (1755-1828). Anna Dorothea Foster and Charlotte Anna Dick Embroidery 1790-91
Almost every one of my sisters had some distinctive aptitude with her fingers.

One worked exquisite lace-embroidery; another had a knack at cutting and fitting her doll’s clothing

so perfectly that the wooden lady was always a typical specimen of the genteel doll-world; and another

was an expert at fine stitching, so delicately done that it was a pleasure to see or to wear anything

her needle had touched. I had none of these gifts. I looked on and admired, and sometimes tried to imitate,

but my efforts usually ended in defeat and mortification. Lucy Larcom. A New England Girlhood, 1889
