"No American woman, let her speak all the tongues, and play on all the instruments invented,
can be said to be educated, if she is not a good needle-woman."

Where did spring go?

Can't believe spring has come and gone. It was a busy one around here. Our oldest daughter graduated with her Master's degree from the University of Michigan and got engaged all in one month! Exciting times. We had her recital to attend and end of the year events that kept us on the road north. Now she is readying to move to New York City. She's always dreamt of living in "the Big Apple." It's finally happening. This photograph of our two daughters was taken on the occasion of Elise's Master's recital in April.

Heart in Hand has released a design that has been requested by many over the years: Pocket Sampler: Daughter. The Pocket Sampler series provides small samplers filled with specialty stitches and always embellished with a sterling silver word charm. We have released Pocket Sampler designs for Mom, Dad, Friend, Baby, Boo! and now Daughter. Despite the specialty stitches, these designs are quick finishes and wonderful gifts for those close to you. The photos show the piece matted and framed, and a little closer version so you can get a better idea of the design itself. What a wonderful surprise for your daughter, or someone who has become like a daughter to you.
