Needleworker's Sampler finish, thirty years ago today and seven years ago today...

Just finished my Needleworker's Sampler by With Thy Needle and Threads
Stitched on 40 count linen coffee dyed by me.
I stitched this with DMC thread instead of the Weeks Dyes Work and
Valdani threads which it called for.  I am very happy with the end result.
Started on 1-1-2014
Finished on 1-9-2014

 On a non stitching note, thirty years ago today I gave birth to child number 3--son number 1.
This is a picture of our son Kyle and his wife MacKenzie on New Year's Day.
Happy Birthday Kyle.
Also on this day seven years ago I became a grandma for the first time when 
this guy was born.
Happy Birthday Jacob.

Thanks for stopping by.
