It's Maria's Turn
It is lovely to have some nice cool weather for a few days. Last Friday was terrible. It was Sydney's hottest day since the 1930's. Thankfully where I live, it just didn't get up to those terrible conditions although, it was still very hot.
Over the past week I have been working on Maria Foster again. I have finished doing all of the things that are on the lawn of the house. There are 2 people, a turkey, a cow, some sheep, either a goose or a duck, haven't worked that one out yet and some dogs.
I thought that you would like to see some more of the samplers in the room where the other samplers that I showed last time. In this room all of the walls are covered in samplers.
On this wall we have Hannah Lancaster; SL's Sophia's Sampler; Harriet Burry; Elizabeth Cox which is another Scarlet Letter Sampler (I have a few of them :)); Lois Minshall that is dedicated to my Mother; a Dutch Spot Sampler; Dutch Beauty and the Richmond Sampler.
I should mention that both Dutch Beauty and the Dutch Spot Sampler are worked over one on 32ct linen.
Very busy week this week, one of my Son's is getting married in a few days, so it is all action stations this week lol.
Anyway, I hope that you have a wonderful week and thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed looking at some of my Samplers.
I have just been asked about my Dutch Beauty being stitched over one on 32 ct linen. My camera's battery is charging up for the big day, but I have gone back to my original post for this sampler and here is the link to it.

Dutch Beauty was stitched on a Fat Quarter and it measures 20 inches wide by 12 inches high.
