Let Me Introduce You...

Today, I'd like to introduce you to a new blogger I recently met. Her name is Abbey, and her blog is Abbey Rose Needleworks. She's going to tell you about herself in her own words.

"My name is Abigail Callaghan-Schafer. I was born and raised in Cork County, Ireland, and moved to the United States at age 24 when my husband was offered a teaching position within the History Department of a well-known east coast university. We currently reside in Boston, Massachusetts but my husband has been offered a new position which may mean relocating. I'm the mother of four children, three boys and one girl; all of whom are grown and on their own with the exception of my youngest daughter who is still in college and commuting from home. I've been sewing since I was a very young girl and over the years have developed a deep passion for historical samplers. I have also been stitching small keepsakes and folk art ornaments for over 15 years that I've sold at local charity craft events each year. But, now that my children are grown, I hope to devote more time to stitching historical reproduction samplers which I look forward to sharing on my blog."
This is the next sampler that Abbey is going to stitch. It's called the "Anne Grimshaw Sampler". Pretty dramatic in a single, dark color, don't you think? I'm going to be following her progress as she works on this beautiful piece. You do know that I love (and used to design) samplers, right? There will always be a special place in my heart for sampler stitchers/designers.

Please take a moment to visit Abbey at Abbey Rose Needleworks. Give her a warm Blogland welcome that we all do so well. Just click here to visit her brand new corner of our world.

Welcome, Abbey! See you again soon.
