My name is Robin Lund and I live in Greensboro, NC with my husband, Bill, and our little dachshund, Molly. Bill works at the local Lexus dealership and although he thinks he is the head of our household, the one who is really in charge is Molly. She is two years old and she has both Bill and I completely wrapped around her little paws. What a little character she is!!!
Here she is celebrating the holidays…see her smile?
As for me, I have been stitching for more years than I care to admit. In fact, having a threaded needle in my hand and short pieces of thread all over my clothing is the only way that I feel totally complete! Wonder what that says about me?
I am very happy to be participating in Nicola’s Scarlet Letter year! As a past recipient of the 50th year award, I think that a stitching challenge is a perfect way to usher in such a milestone year! I only wish that I had thought of it! (I must say, however, that my 50th birthday celebration remains my best one yet!)
My friend Chris Lynch and I formed a sampler guild last year. In fact, the Piedmont Heritage Sampler Guild will be celebrating its first anniversary when Nicola begins a new decade. Currently, our guild has 16 incredibly talented members, 5 of whom are also participating in this challenge.
Although I have several Scarlet Letter samplers in my stash, I wanted to get something new for this challenge. I just ordered “Emma Miles” and “Marion Robertson”. One of these two ladies will get the nod, with the other one bringing up the rear. Will I choose Adam & Eve? Or, will my love for Scottish samplers carry the day? Stay tuned….
