I am using this format to share news from With My Needle and also photos from stitchers. Please email me your photos.
The first photo is from Anna of San Antonio, Texas who stitched the Family Record Sampler to commemorate the birth of her grandson, Paul. This sampler will surely become a family heirloom. I love the way Anna added the names of Paul's two sisters.
Thanks, Anna, for sharing your beautiful work! The frame you chose is exquisite!
Also this week I received a note and photos from Marcia of the Mississippi River Sampler Guild where I taught two classes August 2008.
Marcia wrote, "In August, 2008 you instructed many members of the Mississippi River Sampler Guild, located in Dubuque, Iowa. Our projects were your Long May She Wave needlecase and A Needleworker’s Sampler Huswif. One member has completed and assembled the needlecase and several are still diligently stitching on the huswif. While at our event, many of us purchased your Hornbook Examplar intending to do it as a group guild project.
Thank you for sharing the photos with me. I so enjoy seeing what stitchers do with my designs!!
This week I also heard from Janet Edwards from Great Britain who stitched Be Ye Always Kind and True for her daughter, Lucy, and her fiance, Dave. The happy couple will be married in July at Williamson Park in Lancaster. Best wishes Lucy and Dave for a long and happy marriage, and thank you, Janet, for sharing a photo of your lovely work and a special wedding gift.
