The Story of Carolyn's Sewing Case


About the time I bought Sarah's Sampler, Carolyn Meacham did me a huge favor. When I was stitching my adaptation of and inspiration from Sarah's Sampler, I decided to make a small sewing case for Carolyn as a thank you note.


Notice Carolyn is the Countess of Counting and has the Earl's coronet over her name. Both the coronte and the alphabet are from Sarah's Sampler, as are modifications of the borders.


I haven't given the little sewing case to Carolyn yet; I will send it to her at the end of E-Week. Then I shall sit and make myself one to replace it.
