Greeting Card and Needlework Project

Bless her heart, Ann sent this image in 3 years ago and I'm just now adding it!

The date shown was the year she earned her Gold Award (Way to go, ANN!)

She writes that she stitched it a year or two later.

 

 

This wonderful embroidery pattern was never offered in the official Girl Scout catalogs
