The stitching world is mourning JEAN HILTON

It is with great sadness that yesterday on May 4th, 2009 the stitching world has learned of Jean Hilton's death. I was absolutely stunned when I read about it on stitching groups and it has still not completely sank in.
Jeanne on her blog has written a wonderful testimony and has also shown one of Jean's piece that I particularly love and admired ever since I set eyes on it "Scotlee".
While thinking of the sadness that we are feeling at this time, I suddenly thought of this piece I stitched a while back which reflects an earlier time when mourning samplers became the fashion to express people's grief.

JEAN HILTON, we will miss you and rest assured that you will remain forever in our hearts.
