Today here is a beautiful Spring day so I thought that I would take advantage of the sun shining and show you what I have been up to. For some reason the photos came out the wrong way, but never matter.
Right, the first photo is of a Scarlet Letter Sampler called Susan Singleton. Terri, Deb and I are doing a SAL that is going to take us 2 years to complete. We have to post every 3 months. The first post is to show our fabric and threads. I am going to work Susan on 40ct Antique White Linen and I am using DMC threads as called for. Looking forward to starting this sampler.
This should all be interesting as I usually only work on one sampler at a time as I find it sometimes confusing. But for some reason I have 5 samplers including Susan Rambo going at the moment. Susan will make it 6. My other sampler is a very special Australian Sampler that I have been looking for, for a long long time, but I will talk about that one, another time.
Sorry about the linen not being ironed. I just thought that I would take the photos on a whim and haven't had a chance to iron them. I usually do that when I am finished.
The one about is my Rebecca Cullin. I am doing Rebecca in the original version and I have to be in the mood to do specialty stitches lol.
This my Hestera Harmer Sampler that I bought a few years ago. It is a Queenstown Sampler Design. Hestera is very special to me as I am related to her. Haven't figured out exactly how, but I know that I am related. I think that Hestera is my Anne's GGG Niece or something like that. I have been do a lot of family research and I am working on the connection. Must tell you that that Hestera and my Ann are related to some very important people, wayyyyyyyy back lol.
The other sampler that I have been working on is one of my favorite samplers that I have wanted to do for a long time. It is Marquoir de Justine. Justine is such a pretty girl.
As you can see I have a lot on my plate lol. Don't know how I ended up with so many all at once, but I will get through it all.
Well, that is all about it I guess. Don't know much else. To much knowledge can be dangerous sometimes so they say lol. Thank you for stopping by.
