Ok, I just have a sec, but can you believe this:
I actually finished TWO 9gasp) of BBD's vacation samplers in a week!
The first one is for a fundraiser on behalf of Woodlawn Plantation, part of George Washington's original Mount Vernon estate. Mary Ball is George's mom and 1789 was the year he was inaugurated. I put the pair of birds facing away from each other because apparently she and George had a contentious relationship... it seems she wasn't the easiest woman to get along with. It is on 32-count ivory jobelan with rose blush Waterlilies.
The second is for my friend Verna who turns 100 this week! 100 years!!! Can you imagine? It is on 28 count hand-dyed jobelan from Wichelt called "raspberry lite" stitched in Hydarangea by Needle Necessities (and also under that name now by Treadworx).
