A sampler I completed recently and have displayed in my home library. It features some of my favorite authors and poets. You can purchase this pattern online at 123stitch.com.
I blush to admit, but I started this sampler when my oldest son was two years old. I worked on it fitfully over the years, picking it up and putting it down, but never sticking with it long enough to finish it. Fast forward 25 years (!!) and I realized it would be a perfect housewarming gift for my son and his bride. That was all the inspiration I needed to finally finish it!
