Progress

I have been busy this week, but never too busy to put needle to fabric, and the result is some pleasing progress on "My Sewing Sampler"

Blue Ribbon Designs
I have even begun to apply some of the wonderful old treasures that I found inside the drawers of my Great Grandma Sarah's throttle sewing machine. The rest will be lovingly applied after I complete my stitching.

Hugs
