Hello dear readers!
It was a gorgeous day in the Shenandoah! What beautiful weather...I threw open the windows and enjoyed the fragrant breeze.
My spring break has been wonderful and quite relaxing. I have spent quite a bit of time stitching and have only had eyes for my dear Anne Maria Clarke. She is really starting to take shape! Here is my progress so far...
Tomorrow I will be in Richmond, Virginia and visit the original Anne Maria Clarke (Richmond Sampler.) Words cannot express how excited I am! The ladies in the archives of the Valentine Museum (where the sampler is housed) have been extremely helpful. They were interested in seeing my own Richmond Sampler so it will be tagging along with me. I am thrilled that my reproduction will be in the same room as the original! WOW! I will also visit the cemetery where Anne Maria Clarke is buried; I hope to find her grave and pay my respects.
I would like to thank all of you who have taken the time to leave comments; they mean the world to me! Thank you for the kind words and compliments. I treasure my Blog Land friends...you guys are the best!
I promise a full Richmond report as soon as I return! Happy Stitching!
