Mother's Prayers Sampler Finished


Mother's Prayers
designer The Sampler Girl
32 count Antique Ivory linen
DMC colors
Buttons from Boston
fabric from The Sampler Girl Webshop



started out with a finish and a happy dance at the ironing board


Stuffed and then hand-sewed the bottom


Thought about using these mother of pearl old, old buttons.
I didn't order the star ones in the model and I really wanted to finish it today.



Then remembered I had these from Boston and I liked the gold.



Decided the gold instead of the mother of pearl



attached the little cross with some thread


Then birthed a pillowkeep hanging.
