Replica of my Granma, Belle Sevey, created by my daughter Missy.
She scanned an old photo and printed it on fabric.
She cut out, sewed, stuffed it, then added details as shown on thumbnails.

Family Heirlooms 047

This sampler was embroidered by Sallybee in 1956 when she was in Primary.
These were her favorite colors at the time.
The words on the sampler were her creed by which she tried to live daily.
The frame was created by her mother, Margaret Sevey as there was no
money to purchase a frame. (now this frame is a one of a kind treasure.)
