Abigail Dunlap

This is my first start for the year. It's barely a start. Abigail Dunlap is a simple, but appealing little marking sampler. It's copyright is dated 1986 and one of the skeins of DMC even has the old label. All of that makes me love it more as 1986 was the year I was introduced to cross stitch by another Army wife.

That's a lovely co-incidence, this piece is meant for you to stitch.

Oh, I wish this one was still sold! I would pick it up in a heartbeat. Dunlap is my last name. :) I will be happy to watch your progress.

Hi Donna,

What a nice story and great sampler to start with.

I hope you will bring it to a LSG meeting to show your progress.
