Hi friends! I have finished my mom's sampler block.😚 I am so pleased with this one. It could not be more perfect for her. I have very early memories of being out in the garden with my mom. She IS a gardener, and this sampler, Clara Ellen, just says garden to me!
I had a PROBLEM!! ARGH! The right hand border of the last sampler block was partially off. Two thirds of it was out too far by one stitch!! I just started Clara Ellen in the correct placement and thought maybe I can leave it. As I stitched away, it ate away at me. I ripped it all out. This is the part, but is a picture of it corrected now.😁
I have a pattern giveaway going on right now friends. Take a look if you are interested RIGHT HERE.
The restorative power of the ocean brings Jane Austen and her beloved
brother Henry, to Brighton after Henry’s wife is lost to a long illness.
But the crowded, glittering resort is far from peaceful, especially
when the lifeless body of a beautiful young society miss is discovered
in the bedchamber of none other than George Gordon—otherwise known as
Lord Byron. As a poet and a seducer of women, Byron has carved out a
shocking reputation for himself—but no one would ever accuse him of
being capable of murder. Now it falls to Jane to pursue this puzzling
investigation and discover just how “mad, bad, and dangerous to know”
Byron truly is. And she must do so without falling victim to the
charming versifier’s legendary charisma, lest she, too, become a
cautionary example for the ages.
Stitching and praying,
