I had to take the time to write this post. I work in a very small office in a family owned business. I only have 2 co-workers that are not in the family. Betsy is quite the southern lady - she was born and raised in Alabama - attended an all girls christian college also in Alabama and she is also blessed to have a home filled with gorgeous antiques she inherited from both sides of her family. She has one lovely daughter who is the only grandchild in Betsy's family. Among these family heirlooms - Betsy has 4 or 5 antique hooked rugs but then that is another story - she has quilts too and an amazing little alphabet sampler. It came down in her mothers family - it is a simple alphabet sampler but is in excellent shape - color still good and was stitched by Rebecca Eliza Weyman aged 7 in 1819. I had seen the sampler several years ago when Betsy's mother passed away - her father gave Betsy the sampler. He is in his mid 80's now and lives in a retirement home in FL.
