Happy Sunday! I know you will recognize this pattern, just about everyone online stitched it back when Barb and Alma of Blackbird Designs made it available on their blog! I finally got around to finishing it. The name I stitched in the sampler is my maternal grandmother's maiden name and 1906 is the year she came to America.
The lace (which is kind of hard to see in this photo) is some lace that my grandmother had crocheted. It was made for a pillowcase, but my mother had removed it from the pillow case a long time ago. The lace was also white - that is until I got hold of it! A little bit of coffee and it now looks like really old lace (it is old lace!) After stitching it all together it still needed something more so I added the buttons -- they are kind of old looking too.
What do you think?
