Lynn really liked it! "I went to the mail box just now and there was a gift from Meari! It's that SNOWFLAKE POEM I posted this morning. There it was, all stitched up in ready to go on my wall. It is gorgeous! Meari's stitching is perfect, puts mine to shame. Every stitch perfectly placed. You can't appreciate the work until you hold it. I OWN AN ORIGINAL MEARI! Thank you, thank you. ~Lynn, smiling so broadly"
