Maria from Canada sent me these three wonderful pictures
of her friend Cathie, also from Canada of her finished samplers.

The top one is "Stella Jones 1811" which she stitched it on 32 count
Belfast linen with GAST, the second picture is "1831 Quaker Samplar"
which is also a antique reproduction, she stitched it on 32 count Flax
linen with DMC threads.

The bottom one is "Black Dahlia" she stitched it on 32 count Flax linen
using DMC threads, but most of all I love what she did. Cathie did
her own verse and added a beautiful silver cross charm WOW that
really caught my eye since it looks so beautiful and personalized it
to her liking. Great stitching Cathie and love what you did.

Maria also sent me pictures of Cathie's wall of samplers that she has
stitched through the years and every sampler on that wall was too
beautiful to describe. Thank you Maria and Cathie for your kindness
and generosity in sharing pictures of your finished samplers with me.

God bless, Vilma

These pieces are wonderful! I especially like your personalization of Black Dahlia. It really makes it your own. Congrats on some great finishes.
