Thank you Barb!

Barb, who is a friend of a friend called me and let me know the origins of the two samplers I found at the antique mall. The top is from The Abecedarian and is called A Colonial Garden and the bottom is from The Sampler Collection published by the publishers of Just Cross Stitch and Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly. One is from 1986 and the other from 1989.
Thank you so much for the info and sorry to take so long posting. I've been gone most of the week.

Antique Mall find

I had some time to spare before taking my mother to the doctor yesterday and my daughter and I went to an antique mall. Right before leaving, I looked down at a basket underneath a table and folded inside a ziplock bag found these two samplers from the 1990's. Anyone have any idea who is the designer for either piece?

Fair Kind True a la Lorraine

I met Lorraine for lunch today and was able to bring this home to scan. She did a fabulous job and used R&R Amethyst with Gentle Arts Pink Azalea, over one, love it!
