I thought that I would post a progress picture of Abigail Gould before the holidays. I started her on Monday and am about at the half way point of her minus some of the tree. She is just the little stitch that I needed after finishing off a larger project. The linen I'm using is a little more beige than my picture shows and the flowers in the border aren't quite as orange looking as they are here.
I came across a picture of the original today on Pinterest and thought that I would share that here:
I think that if I had seen a picture of the original, I may have changed out the border bud colors to be more in keeping with the original, but since I have over half of them done and like the bit of color it adds to the sampler, I'll leave them as I have them stitched. I'm hoping to be finished with dear Abigail by the end of next week (probably an ambitious thought with Christmas next week also). I've already picked out my next SL project - Ann Smith - and can't wait to get started on her.
I hope that everyone has a wonderful Christmas and holiday season.
