Hello, Primmies -
Well here I was just sitting around reading about samplers cuz I'm behind in doing a
follow up post and in walks Mr. Glen Oaks
with a little package for me. I wasn't
expecting anything so I couldn't figure out
what it was. TOTAL SURPRISE, it is from
Linda of Parker's Paradise. Do you remember her post from January 3rd when Linda
shared her latest works, adorable hand-
stitched pillows with the cute childlike writing and drawings. Linda backed them with mattress ticking fabric and some with red check fabric. WELL, THAT'S WHAT I
GOT, a stitched pillow from her. Mine has
the vine with little red berries stitched from
French knots and the alphabet in the middle, signed like a sampler by "Ann Z 1864".
How did she know one of my favorite times
in history is the Civil War period?? My pillow
is backed with a simple tiny pale blue and white striped fabric. I love it, Linda!
This is a truly genuine act of kindness, thoughtfulness and love.
You are amazing, Linda. I will always think of you when I look at my sweet pillow.
Hopefully gals, photos will follow.
But I wanted to get this posted today . Go to
Linda's Jan.3rd post HERE to get an idea of
what my pillow looks like.
Back to my samplers, I'm still re-working the
wording and scanned photos.
