I was horrified to read a post at Sharon B's Blog dated March 3rd AND Linn's Blog dated March 6th.
About taking vintage samplers - removing the fibers - adding color. There are links from these blogs with pictures/articles & multiple comments. I'm so irritated. Really feel a rant coming .... Who in their right mind would remove stitches from a vintage needlework project? I just cannot wrap my mind around it.
