I "shoulda" cleaned the house.
I "shoulda" done the laundry.
I "shoulda" finished my TDIPT creations.
I "shoulda" posted to my blog.

Alma had purchased a little antique sampler on her last trip to France, "Petites Lettres Rouges".
The idea of the contest is for people to stitch the design while Alma and Barb are in France again, and they will have a drawing for a French souvenir from their trip. How fun! I love a challenge!
