Maria Bars - The Best Mail Day Ever!!!!

I feel so lucky! I have had this Antique Sampler on layby for 2 1/2 years! I was finally able to complete my layby a couple of weeks ago and it arrived today - all the way from the USA! I just love it!!!! At first it looked like a print, but it was stitched so fine on the gauze. Unbelieveable. If I can get a close up photo of some of the stitching, I'll post it here.....Love you Maria Bars, 1824

Georgie!! It is just a treasure! You are so smart to acquire it this way. "Good waiters get good tips!" One of my dear ex's better quotes! LOL (the old skin fint)
That's beside the point...the point is your sampler is so gorgeous and special!
Hugs,
