It was FABULOUS to watch...the pieces so beautiful...the prices much more than I could imagine. Being an incurable romantic, I can't help reflecting on the stitchers of these beauties.

I caught most of it!! What a beautiful selection of samplers. And I was so surprised at some of the prices. Wish that I could have bought one!

The Betty Ring total sale was over 4 million USD. Keep on stitching, ladies.....a simple sampler done today may be worth a fortune in years hence!!
