Owner / Donor Story:
OWNER STORY February 18, 2000 was a stormy day in Mississauga, Ontario but it was my wedding day and I loved it. As a permanent reminder of this occasion, my Auntie Dale designed and completed this beautiful embroidery. I love the way it is so delicately designed and yet shows the talented ability of the artist. Thank you Auntie Dale for the hours of love you put into this special piece. It will be forever valued in our home.
I thoroughly enjoyed stitching this sampler and am happy that their marriage has survived and thrived through the development of a family of four healthy, hearty boys and wish them well for the future.
