Mary Wigham Scales the Heights

This is Extreme Stitching! Annie has taken her Mary Wigham right to the Top of Europe - the summit of the Jungfrau. What a pinnacle of achievement! I don't suppose many samplers have been up a mountain - my guess is less than 2. Annie says she managed to get some stitching in while travelling on steamers and trains, and now home has been admiring everyone else's samplers. She says that each is perfect in their own way. I couldn't agree more. I hope Annie will tuck these images of Mary on the Jungfrau into an envelope and stick them to the back of her framed, finished Mary Wigham, so that those looking in the future can see what a truly memorable occasion this has been.
