Underground Sampler Done

My dd and I finished the Underground Railroad Sampler this week and, in fact, she gave her presentation on it and made an A! I think the sampler turned out very nice. It was a challenge to make these blocks... not for their difficulty, most were rather simple, but it seems this project came along in the midst of a turbulent time in our lives with a family death, health problems, a new job for my ds (so more time on the road taking him to and from) and more. But I've no doubt that my trials don't begin to compare to those of the slaves who travelled the UGRR and those who worked on it (providing shelter etc.).
