Fabulous heirloom

Janet created this birth sampler for her newest grandchild. The 7 dwarfs are stitched on a beautiful piece of Crossed Wing collection fabric called Dogs day out.

Janet did a beautiful job on the stitching and mounting but there is more that adds to this treasure. The baby quilt on which the stitching is mounted was Janet's very own baby quilt made for her in 1941 by a Mrs Perry who was a close friend of Janet's grandmother!

Janet has the quilt folded over once so that her daughter can hang it on a dowel in the baby's room.

Just think of the generations involved in this birth sampler. Isn't it a fabulous gift for little Raelyn?

Kathy's wolves

Kathy is one of the Friday stitchers and they are a great bunch for stitching over one. Here is an incredible pack of wolves done over 1 on 25 count. Great job Kathy!
