Thank you Nicola and Jo for offering this challenge and SAL! I am also turning 50 this year, in October, so I just HAD to join this challenge! I am so excited for the incentive to finish some of my SL WIPs. I have all of the catalog pages and have spent many happy hours in the past pouring over all of the samplers and reading all of the info about each one. I have The Unicorn Sampler started and AED 1746. I own another one which I haven't started, and I have coveted many many others.
Here is my start on MD The Unicorn Sampler. It is circa 1660.
And here is what it looks like finished:(photo taken from Scarlet Letter Website)
And then there is AED Germany 1746,which actually has the initials AEDEGNES 1746. I affectionately call it Agnes. Here is the finished chart(taken from SL):
I don't have any progress pics at the moment, but I will take some this week for sure.
So man, if I could get these 2 samplers done in 2013, I would be overjoyed. I do have some other stitching commitments, but this will help motivate me to keep these in the rotation.And of course I would LOVE to finish these and start something new!
