Gorgeous Flat Fold for Me!

See the beautiful colors and sheen of threads.. Friday this lovely flat fold came to me in the mail from Chris. Chris had me as her EMS exchange partner and she's from USA Arizona.
I love the motifs and the verse. Chris I'm amazed and impressed how all the colors of threads compliments the fabric. The delicate lace trim outlines the sampler perfectly. I've not seen this design before but I sure love it.
This is beautifully made & finished. I absolutely love my treasured sampler. Chris thank you very much for all the work you put into this project. It will be treasured and admired always. I greatly appreciate it. I feel so lucky to have received this from you.
My time these days have been greatly spent caring and visiting with my mom. She was hospitalized from last Saturday - Tuesday. Her sugar levels were in the 400's (from chemo) and she needed a blood transfusion. We know now that her levels of sugar will not be stable. We have to treat each number individually. This means checking her blood every 2 hours after she eats. The most challenging part is her levels have been dropping in the night. So that means every few hours we are checking it again. Yes my sister and I are taking turns but we sleep when we can. Right now mom is feeling better because we are consistently on it.
I wish everyone a blessed and great week. With love and appreciation Annette - California
