A Stitching Sampler!

June 17, 2017

Happy Saturday!  Here Stitching Sampleris a unique piece that has more than its share of sentimental value.  This is a needlework stitching sampler that was done by my grandmother (Naomi Peplinski) and just recently gifted to me by my late aunt (Shirley Withbroe) who just happened to love anything strawberry.  A wonderful keepsake that I will treasure forever.
