Framed At Last!

A couple of weeks ago, I picked up two samplers from my framer, Carol.  The first one was Mary Gibson (a reproduction sampler from the Halsmere Museum).  The second was Janet Gibson (a reproduction by Loree from Hope's Dwelling Place).  These two Gibson girls are not related; it was just a coincidence that I was working on their samplers at the same time.  I really enjoyed stitching both of these, but then I haven't met a sampler I don't like.  They are so addictive!  Here they are:



On Friday, I took a new sampler model to Carol to be framed.  Both Tom and Carol (who is also a needleworker) really like the new sampler. (It still needs a name.)  I hope to release it along with a pair of Mini-Quaker Samplings in late January.  I hope you'll like them.
