This is my start to The 1820 Ann Hicks Sampler. She was in volume 37 of Sampler & Antique Quarterly. It doesn't show her age, but she was a girl who would have used every crayon in the box. Lots of color changes and quirky little checkerboard critters. My favorite part? She's darn near border less with the exception of what you see at the bottom. Adam and Eve are also included, and they are wearing crowns. I forgot to scan the picture from the chart, so I'll include it on another post. I'm using NPI on vintage Lt. Examplar.
I try to go for a walk or bike ride every day, and the other night I took my camera with me. I'm not a fan of cacti, but these Beavertail Prickly Pear are pretty when they're in bloom. It seems like everything is in bloom right now and my head is about to explode from the pollen.
