Finished!

I finally finished 13 Colonies. YAY! I love this piece so much. My DH said I have to get it framed. The colors on this are so nice. I knew I had to do it when I saw it. Virginia is the first colony listed and I'm a Virginia girl born and bred.


The next subject I want to mention is customer service. Some of you may remember a few months ago I mentioned that 7-11 had sugar free mango Slurpees. I wrote an email to 7-11 to state how much I appreciated it as I am diabetic. Today in the mail there was an envelope from 7-11 with a letter thanking me for the feedback. They also included two coupons for free Slurpees. Now that is customer service. Usually you receive a letter from a company when you complain, not when you compliment them. I was delightfully surprised.

Oh Jan...how pretty! I am so jealous and wish mine was done too! Guess I better get stitching.

Kudos to 7-11 too for great customer service.

Enjoy the Slurpees, that was a great plus for 7-11.
Love 13 Colonies Jan Sam is right the colors are great and it will look great framed and on your wall.

I really dislike the new security thing blogspot is using now. I have a problem reading the letters.

Gorgeous piece of stitching. That will make a marvelous framed piece.

When I was a little girl, my father always encouraged me to send letters of appreciation to companies who made products I liked. He said it was not unusual for them to respond with coupons and free samples. I never found one that did that though. So now my faith in the idea is restored!

My daughter is moving to VIrginia Beach next week...big move from the big city of Chicago, but she's so excited!

Oh, wow--I love the finished sampler--hadn't noticed that little house on the bottom before. And yay for both the slurpee and the nice reply from 7-11!

13 Colonies looks really amazing! Congratulations on a wonderful finish!

How nice of you to write an appreciative letter. Companies get far too few of those kind!

I don't believe I missed your finish post, of course 13 Colonies is beautiful and it deserves to be framed and displayed as is all of your work.
