Shamrocks & Samplers 

A very happy St. Patrick's day to all who enter here.

And for the occasion, a little gift to you. This is a graph of the earliest shamrock design I've yet to find stitched on a sampler. It is on an early 17th century English sampler held by the V&A.

The shamrock often symbolized The Holy Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Ghost).
