The Mystery of My Creation Sampler

For the adventurous stitcher: See all our designs and SALs here

I have been pleased to see a lot of you purchasing my very first design, Creation, on my Etsy Shop   Creation Sampler  However, I have questions.

There is a Mystery surrounding recent orders of my Creation Sampler published so many years ago. Lately, since I have been seeing many orders from you for Creation, my very first design, in my Etsy Shop I wonder:

What prompted your orders?
Is there a special retreat in the planning?
Are you all friends, doing a stitch along together?

I am delighted with the orders but am curious as to the why.
I know there is a wonderful story to tell. :-)
For those who are curious and have not seen it, here it is.

Many thanks!
