Matilda Ann Charles

Matilda Ann Charles - SL kit

I picked this sampler up from the framer last week.  I am very please with the results of this sampler.  Now I am putting the final stitching in Susey Oliver.  I really don't know which sampler I will stitch next...

Winter Projects



Winter, a lingering season, is a time to gather golden moments, embark upon a sentimental journey, and enjoy every idle hour. 
- John Boswell





I am currently working on Susey Oliver - Scarlet Letter.  This is a picture of the finished reproduction.  I really like Scottish Samplers.

 I started Margery Dean, but my linen was to dark.  I will start it again with a different linen.  Maybe a lambswool.  I will have to see.  This to me is a great spring/summer sampler.

Progress Ann Hall, New Start Matilda Charles

Here is my progress of Ann Hall.  Though this sampler is just about complete.  I am putting it aside for a few days until I decide on the color for the flesh of both the cherubs and Adam and Eve.  The bottom is a picture from the bottom of the sampler.

New start today!!  I have begun Matilda Charles, also from the Scarlet Letter in 30 ct linen and AVAS.  Yes, I did start a sampler before finishing one.  That is okay for today!!
