This is an interesting early proverb sampler with the date of A1686D. It seems to be unsigned but that may be in the lower band? The colours are nice and strong but I feel the photos make them look slightly more vibrant than in real life and when seen as a whole.

The sampler, as written reads. Look well to that thou takest in hand its better worth then house or land. Let vertue be thy guide and it will keep the out of pride.

The final band is very difficult to make out but words seem to be in boxes? This will be very well packed. Any opinions will be welcomed.
