Good Afternoon Everyone!
I know you have probably given up on the
I shared with you for the first time in June.
Well, life gets in the way as you all know and it
kept being shoved aside for something more
important. Well, I'm finally getting back to it
and trying to do at least two letters or motifs
almost every night. I'm into the more difficult
letters now, so it is taking a little longer.
Well, the long awaited reveal. Hope it was
worth the wait. Of course, if you have a memory
like mind, you probably forgot all about it, but

Some of the things I love everything
about this sampler~
~I have never seen anything like it
~The letters are wonderful
~It is simple, but elegant
~The colors are wonderful
~The frame is to die for.

stitches, as well as I can?
Would love to know how you feel
about this issue. Usually I reproduce
a sampler as close to the original as
possible, but this one is missing
right much, but I think that only adds
to its charm.
Please let me know what you think
about these wonderful antique samplers.
I hope to have the "Marking Sampler"
finished by the end of the month. No
promises, but I am really going to try.
