For Those Who Remember Alma Lynne

If you stitched counted cross stitch in the 1980s and 1990s, then surely you have stitched a piece designed by Alma Lynne Hayden. I did many of her bears. Maybe a couple of geese. And who knows what else?

For an update to her story:

I remember meeting her at Spirit of Cross Stitch Shows. She's got a big personality! I stitched one of her teddy bears dressed as a bunny as a birth sampler for my cousin's daughter. On peach aida--it was the very early 90s.

Good ole Alma Lynn! She had some cool stuff back in the 80's and 90's. Thanks for sharing that story with us. And Anna's right...I met her at a Spirit of Cross Stitch, too and she was very colorful. I think I remember buying a chart and she autographed it? Hm. Now I'll have to go look....
