Benton County Historical Museum. A great old building originally built as a college in 1867.
of course i found another favorite this was stitched in 1862.
at Fort Worden,Washington in there museum housed in an Officer Home. once again a great butterfly.
this is part of Dotty Parker sampler stitched in 1824 i think you can get a chart of this from Benton Historical Society online if you wish to stitch it. They also have printed a nice book with the samplers so do visit the web site www.bentoncountymuseum.org
i have more to share but i also want to share what a great Easter i had at my daughter's friends house.
besides all these homemade goodies we had a great meal of ham.
it was one of the best Easters i have had since the kids were little.
how happy can one mother be. a perfect weekend. friends,samplers and my sweet lovely daughter!
i love this felt watering can and needless to say right after i took this picture i dumped the bowl of jelly beans! so much for graceful. till next time enjoy your spring!
