A Post on Behalf of Roberta S

My name is Roberta Smith and at this time I live in Macon, Georgia.
Born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts and have lived in LA/Orange
County; Tampa, Florida; White Bear Lake, Minnesota; Miami, Florida;
Palm City Florida and now Macon.

I learned to sew, knit, stitch and quilt as a child.  I love to work
on Linen.  Any thread/fiber is OK with me, but one of my favorites is
NPI.  I love samplers but have been enjoying stitching smalls and

I belong to a bookclub and love to read, also, enjoy golfing,
gardening and cooking/baking.

Looking forward to stitching along with you and your quest and with
the other stitchers.

A very warm welcome Roberta, thank you for participating.

The hardest part of the challenge is picking one sampler to work on. Have you decided which one you will be stitching?

Hi Roberta! Welcome to the group! I also like NPI silk, it is beautiful thread to work with. Looking forward to seeing which sampler you will start with, I know it is hard to choose!
