You're all so sweet and kind. You inspire me.
At present there are four antique samplers in the queue here to be charted: an amazing Spanish sampler with many of the spectacular characteristic counted satin stitch motifs and an interior four-sided border of alphabets, a late 18th century English sampler featuring four verses on the four seasons, a Scottish sampler- basically a rag but the amazing design is still discernible, and Mary Wilson 1711, which is on my website.
I am finishing up the chart tonight, then the stitching begins.
Cheers to everyone
