The first entry
We have received our first entry for the contest! I asked Vonna if we could post her sampler here and she graciously agreed. The following note tells a bit about her entry.
"Recently I’ve been thinking a lot about my Granny. Her maiden name was Eileen Campbell. She loved rusty coral colors, so I stitched my sampler and dedicated it to my Granny. I used DMC colors: Light Value 3830, Medium Value: 355 and Dark Value: 3777. I stitched it on my own “bake and basted” 28 ct. coffee/tea stained linen. I think it turned out just lovely. I didn’t make any of the “school girl” mistakes in the pattern because one thing about my Granny was she was a perfectionist and in her stitching every thing had to be perfect!"
You can see more pictures on her blog spot. Click on her name above and you will be magically directed there.
What a wonderful way to remember your Granny! I know she would love seeing her name stitched into your sampler Vonna.
Vonna you are now officially entered into the contest! Barb and I are getting ready to leave tomorrow so don't forget ....we will be shopping!

Until later dear friends, Alma
