April K. was received at last. Unfortunately, it seems that the enclosed postcard was missing. The whole thing is very strange because I sealed that Priority Mail flat-rate box with good quality packing tape.
I think that I had sent her a special greeting card as well.
Anyway, here is a photo of the stitched piece on the cover of a hard-bound writing journal. I sewed the journal cover in coordinating fabric and then appliqued the cross-stitched mini sampler onto it. I embroidered a green stem stitch border around it to disguise the edge.
The pattern is from an old Piecework magazine. I'll post the creator later.
