Red Velvet Inscription Sampler
Red Velvet Inscription Sampler ~ Stitched by Rhonda B. ~ Auburn,  IN 
Note from the stitcher: My Red Velvet Inscription Sampler is a prized finish as it won Best of Show
in our County Free Fall Fair.  The fabric used was 25-ct Silkweaver Golden Promise, stitched
one-over-one with Gloriana Autumn Arbor.  This hangs right by the front door for all to see.
Beautiful job Rhonda - what a treasure! Thank you for stitching and sharing.
