As a reminder of this time Linda decided to stitch a sampler
and the design she chose when visiting the Needlework Gallery was -
Margreet Beemsterboer’s Sampler of Motifs From Marken
published by Jacqueline Holdsworth of Needleprint in the UK.
This is what Linda wrote when she sent her sampler imagesto me on the 4th of September 2014 -
“Today is the day I picked up my sampler.
I’m so pleased, can’t believe that I have stitched it and finished it.
But to get to this stage has been great therapy.
It is hard to believe that this journey started four years ago.
Tonight we will have a hanging ceremony.
We are just starting to feel that recovery is in sight”.
