You may remember Viji from Chennai in India who is was stitching her Mary Wigham on blue Aida - well she has finished. Congratulations Viji!
She tells us: 'At last, I completed the Mary Wigham Sampler. I am attaching photographs of Mary Wigham's in front of the Gandhi Monument on the beach at Pondicherry, a few photographs of Mary in Mahabalipuram (a sculpture city). It is also called a Mamallapuram. The Five Rathas are known as Pandava Rathas also. The Lion and Elephant in front of these caves are sculpted wonders as they are carved out of a single stone. Victor was able to take phtographs of Mary's Sampler in front of these lovely places. I enjoyed stitching Mary's Sampler so much. I have no words to thank you for bringing Mary close to people like me who stay so far and would never had an opportunity to know about her but for your efforts.'
It is lovely to share your Mary Wigham, Viji, and your stitching companionship. I am so impressed by your husband's placing something beneath your sampler to keep it clean while taking his pictures - that is really thoughtful.
