Thanks everyone who commented on my last post; I usually keep to just "stitchy" topics but I thought you might enjoy my story about Elisabeth. I also appreciate all of your suggestions for samplers. I think that I've picked out the design that I am going to use; it's from Blackbird Designs and it is called "Special Delivery Girl's Birth Sampler." I'm thinking I will stitch her birth and death dates under her name. What do you think?
Now, here's a finish I am really excited to share with you. It was so hard to send this away; I'll just have to make another one for myself. A small group of eight of us have been doing seasonal exchanges this year, and for summer, it was my turn to mail to Gaby. I stitched "Sunflower Sampler" from Country Cottage Needleworks and finished it up as a wallhanging with coordinating sunflower fabrics. I also sent her the cute hanger for it. Gaby received it recently and said that she likes it!
Maybe later this week I will snap an update photo of BOAF Friendship Sampler; I've been working on the border. I've also been working on LHN Traveling Stitcher so I'll try to snap a picture of that too. You'll just have to stop back again later in the week! Thanks for your visit!
