Genesis 3: 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

Deborah at Midsummer Night Musing has a post on A&E samplers... check it out! I will continue to post for you on this subject...
I found a great book at the library you may be interested in also. It's called Girlhood Embroidery 1, by Betty Ring. It is a phenomenal historical account of embroidery through the times with beautiful color pictures of samples. It has a section devoted to A&E samplers. I'm actually looking to purchase this one.
Lastly I leave you with and A&E engraving from a 17th century Bible printed in 1616. It's listed on ebay if you care to look there are other engravings also... absolutely beautiful! (a little out of my $$ range! lol) but the detailing is awesome.
