Lori ~
Your samplers are wonderful! I am always amazed at how much you accomplish!
If I ever get my Magdalena horse rug bound, I will be putting it over my headboard, too.
What a beautiful niece and what a great auntie you are!
Happy 4th to you and hubby!

Samplers are wonderful Lori! How nice they look where you have them. I just hung my antique horse rug that you have over your bed the other day. Love that rug!
Your niece is too cute. I bet they are excited each time they come knowing they will get an outfit. Nice thing to look forward too! great memories as they get older
