The 1809 Frances Eden Sampler
36 ct. Picture This Plus Legacy linen
AVAS and NPII concentrated on the right side of the sampler and finishing up the sky. The lovely bright colors are a pleasure to work with during the long gloomy days of winter. I apologize for the poor quality of the photos. If I waited for a sunny day I wouldn't have a blog update until the Spring.
Of course I had to put a few more stitches into Jane Atkinson too. I am in love with the colorful floral border on Jane. I'm making an effort to do at least one strand of the over one verse each time I work on Jane. I don't want to be faced with all that over one verse at the end. That has been my downfall with past samplers that lanquish in the WIP closet because I don't want to stitch the over one verse.
The Scarlet Letter
Silkweaver - 36 ct. Sandcastle
My neighbor and friend, Karen, and her sweet Corgi, Cassidy, gave Emma and Owen new toys for Christmas. I'll leave you today with a snap of Emma and her new squeaker toy. She carries her present around with her like a toddler with a security blanket.
