This sampler was done by me last summer as I traveled across the country. I have tried to make the samplers reflect our current time while still holding on to the heritage of our grandmothers' needles. You should hear the bees and feel the sun on the flowers while you stitch this. The ever changing shades of the Caron threads allows you to "paint" as you stitch, making each design unique.
