Presents Presents

Good morning sweet friends.
The new year is almost here.

Whew.. where did this year go?

I know I have said this a hundred times or more.
 Hubby Bob is the best!

My birthday was earlier in the month.
December 2nd.

I love bunnies.
Every room of my house has some kind of bunny in it.
Not sure what the attraction is, but I am drawn to them.
Bob knows me pretty good.
This was my birthday present.

A hooked bunny rug.

I tucked this beauty away for a bit.
Bob and I will be doing a project come the first of the year.
This will be part of those plans.
Stay tuned.

Next my Christmas present.
Did I say my hubby was the best!

An early linen sampler.
It has some damage and needs to be professionally framed.
 I love the colors!
Unfortuantely, I do not know the year this was stitched,
as that was part of the damage. 
However, it was stitched in December by Mary Catherine Wilson aged 9 years.
Mary Catherine was fromToronto City.
Toronto became a city in 1834, so that is a starting point for me to date this piece.
Will need to do some research.
Even though it has some condition issues. 
It still is a beauty to me!!

Living in a small town, I have no idea where to take this,
so if anyone has any ideas on how this should be re-framed,
please let me know.

Sampler Blessings To All!
