As you can see from the pattern, the original sampler appears to be framed in a "found" frame. My thought is to leave off the border and frame mine in an 8"x10" frame that I may have in my stack of found frames. What do you think? There's no time to look...more stitching and a lot of gardening awaits.
And speaking of amazement...look at this rosemary plant I found while raking leaves yesterday. We have had an exceptionally, or what felt like, long hard winter and rosemary doesn't survive here in the mildest of winters. You can imagine my surprise!
My sister, who is the most amazing kind and loving person, prepared Easter dinner for her five children and their spouses and insisted my husband and I join them. Which in all totalled: 13 adults, 3 or 4 dogs and her five beautiful grandchildren...my great nieces and great nephew...all of whom are truly great. Her home is small, however with her heart, it is always filled with the most amazing love!
