At a weekend of quilting with good friends I have been drawn back to the world of cross stitch after a more than 20 year absence. My friends were talking about the SL charts and Nicola's challenge. The intrigue was building in me as I listened to their excitement. I thought about joining the challenge hesitantly because it has been such a long time since I stitched. After arriving home, I went through some things that I had saved after my mother passed over 11 years ago. She was a gifted textile artist. My decision was solidified when I found tucked away, two SL kits that my mother had never started. One is the Heloise Williams Sampler and the other is the Meriah Howell Sampler. I'm excited to join the stitch a long and excited to stitch two samplers picked out by my mother years ago.
