Hiya. I've been finished with the body of the boat people sampler, but can't seem to cross the border.
Elaborate borders such as those seen on many a sampler blog are very appealing, but I have trouble with them. I prefer doing an alphabet and very simple border working from side to side, not top to bottom. I hate that. And this is how clueless I am - why didn't I remember from 20 years ago to turn the piece upside down, rather than have a bunch of fabric in my way to the right? It's easier for me to stitch and scoop with bulk on the left.
Lots of heart designs floating around for Valentine's Day which reminded me of a box I have stashed. It was purchased 20 years ago or more and I'm not sure if it is from Sudberry. Thickly padded mount for the needlework and a heavy beautifully constructed box.
