A Little Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends, I'm making some headway on "Wild Roses"... here's a snaperoo...

... as you can see I've made a change to the "Name" stitched under the alphabet.  Since the date within the piece was 1800 I used that as a starting point.  Then I dug around in the old family tree for someone that would be age appropriate...  I came up with a paternal great-great-great-grandmother. who would have been about 10 years old in 1800.  

That's about it for today sports fans.  Thanks for stopping by, do stop again.  Stay Safe!

Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!


  1. Oh Edgar, Wild Roses is looking fabulous. Love the colors! What a tribute to Patsey!

  2. I love the idea of using an actual relative's name in this piece. I have to start doing more research on my ancestors. Once again you are making quick work of a lovely piece.

  3. What a clever and lovely way to adapt a dated sampler in tribute to your own kin. I am enjoying your progress... Hope you are back to
    feeling fit again, Edgar.

  4. What a great idea! Love it!

  5. Such rich bold colors. And I love that you hunted through the family tree for an period-appropriate familial name. ~Robin~

  6. That's a beautiful Sampler. Love the colours you've chosen for it.

  7. Dearest Edgar: That is such a beautiful thing to do for a family member, you are so kind and gentle to do so.
