blessings from the farm,



  1. I don't very often see the old samplers stitched by boys. That's very nice!
    Can't wait to see your pics from the show. Have a great time!

  2. Hope you have a wonderful show Lori...and wishing I lived closer to these kinds of things...not much happens here in Wisconsin. Seems anything 'good' that we want to attend is a hotel night away.

  3. What a wonderful sampler! The colors are just the best and the frame is perfect, too.
    Best of luck at the show...sounds like a fun, fun time!

  4. Oh my Lori!! This litte sampler is just precious!! I love the frame too. Best wishes for many sales at your show. Can't wait to see pics! Hugs, Lori

  5. Lovely sampler. Have a fun show!

  6. Thanks for sharing that sampler -- it is just wonderful!! Love that it was stitched by a young boy...

    Have fun at the show -- and I hope you sell a bunch!!

  7. Little boys' samplers are so rare but I have a couple in my historic sampler book. I got the history on why they stitched them. I'm so thrilled for you that you own one.

  8. Wish I lived closer!!! I can't wait to see pics! LOVE that little boy sampler...Soooo sweet! hugs!
