And what a joy it was to stitch this sampler!
One of those you enjoy working on so much, you almost hate to be done with it!
I had to change the wording along the bottom....my whole name didn't work with the way it was charted, (her sampler, finished in ****), so what you see is my version ;-)
I will miss working on it, but it's headed to the framers soon, so we can enjoy looking at it on the wall :)
Mary Beale, her very ownself, recommended not filling in around the verse, so that's how I left it :)
