MaryAnn Macdonald and Catharine Metcalf

Mom and I have been busy stitching, during my visit to Ohio.  Here is my MA Macdonald to date.

This is a close-up of the sweet little angel.  I asked mom to please stitch this so when I look at this sampler I will always remember, she is watching over me.

Here is Catharine Metcalf, mom has been stitching away on her since November 2.  While she was stitching my angel, she actually let me stitch below the house, the grass area, with the tree and sheep.

Here are a few close-ups of her sampler. 

I could have also sent pictures of all the snow while I have been here, but I think you all are pretty tired of winter by now.  Tomorrow it is back home to Florida.  I think I'll need a few days to thaw out.

I have enjoyed spending percious time with mom and will look forward to our next stitching date.
