Soar...

a sampler inspired by a family of eagles living in Iowa that captured the hearts of America.


When this pattern came out I wasn't smart enough to get one right away and since she only sold 100, I was too late. When I started seeing the finished pieces on blogs, I knew I had to have it. I put out a yell to see if anyone would sell, trade or borrow the pattern. Vonna kindly offered to borrow me her pattern. I was delighted.

Her pattern came in last Friday's mail and I quickly pulled the threads (DMC, yeah!) and some 30ct. white linen, in which I dyed black. It turned out great.


By Friday evening I was well on my way with this project. I love how it turned out and truly enjoyed stitching it.

I finished it yesterday afternoon. I haven't decided if I am going to frame it or make some kind of a hanging.

When I checked with Vonna about mentioning her name in my blog I learned that there are quite a few people that would like to borrow the pattern. I guess I'm not the only one that missed the boat.

Thank you again, Vonna, I really love this piece.

Happy Stitching,
