Friday Flashback---the missing sampler

yep, remember the Sheepish Design sampler I worked almost a year on off and on back about 3 or 4 years ago?  It was taken from my kitchen and hopefully the person who just had to have it will send it back one day.
I'll never forget the places where I stitched this in hand. No hoop for this one. Part of it was completed while I was recovering from surgery in 2007.
I feel certain and am hopeful it was not destroyed and will one day be again where it is here.
I worked very hard on it and framed it myself. Took a long time to find a frame that fit perfectly.
The name of the man stitched very tiny in the sampler I dedicated it to, as I held his hand while he passed this life in 2003.
Through the years, I've had several personal emails on this Sheepish Design, Dutch Alphabet.
Samplers are personal to me as many of you as well.
Let's hope it's returned in good condition and will find it's home again.

Onward to the weekend~
going with a friend on a girl's day out and so excited!!!!!
Till later,


  1. How scary! When was it taken? Was it a home invasion, or did you know the perpetrator?

    Beautiful work!

  2. I love this design Jennifer. I hope this sampler comes back to you one day. They do keep our memories from the time that we stitched them.

  3. That just hurts. Sending prayers it will find it's way home. Cathryn

  4. This is so pretty, Jennifer. Hope you have a wonderful time today with your friends.

  5. Well, that is very bothersome isn't it? Man! Well, I also prayed it shall return to you. Have a great girl's day out.

  6. Some people just amaze me, and not in a good way! I hope to hear that your sampler has been returned soon. Have a fun girls' day out!

  7. I hope you get your sampler back, Jennifer! Why is it that some people decide to take something that means so much? I think that's just awful and I'll be praying that the Lord pricks this persons heart until he must return it to you!!

    God bless you - Julie
