Margaret Reynolds

I have been working on Margaret Reynolds. Today I have added my lovely OH's initials and my initials to the centre part and put my name at the bottom. I decided to add my middle name 'McCrindle'. It is a Scottish tradition to have a surname as your middle name. I was named after my gran whose maiden name was Elizabeth McCrindle - I have three cousins with the same name!

Elizabeth - I have so much admiration for how you have embraced samplers and how quickly you learn.

This is a beautiful sampler and a precious one.

I am glad to see you using your strawberry.

Nicola - my lovely strawberry has transformed my stitching. I now thread several needles with the threads I need to complete an area. I just love it x
