I wish I had something new and exciting to share this month but all I was able to do was pop my little sampler into a frame:
I was going to try to make a hand painted frame like was shown in the model, but when I found this little “burled wood” one (I’m not sure it is real burled wood but it’s a good impression) it was perfect. I’m going with it. And here is a picture of my dear Grandma whose name I put on it.
She died five years ago at the great age of 94. She was sharp of mind and sweet of temper right up to the end. Her folks were German immigrants and she grew up on a farm in Iowa (it is still there!) but she herself was a nurse her whole life as well as an avid stitcher and quilter. I was named Mary Ruth after both my grandmas so this grandma is my namesake for my middle name.
To see more finishes, head back to Rachel’s blog, The Ten Hour Stitcher. And be sure to check back with me next month when I have a lot more done!
