Since Hannah's arrival this week, I have been thinking about ways to make her feel more welcome and a part of Thistle manor.
I found some wool in my stash box to line the bottom of the box, a Kelmscott ruler and thread winder and a pair of scissors with two birds. With a name like Birdwell, a pair of scissors with two birds on the handle seemed appropriate for our Hannah.
"and write thy name upon the heart"
Isn't this a beautiful quote? I may alter it just a bit for an AppleJack Valentine "and write thy name upon my heart."
Hannah's Quaker sampler--more stash digging and I found a scrap piece of leftover vintage Maritime linen from Lakeside and some Gloriana silks. Which should I use the black or the red?
