I have really enjoyed reading all of the posts on this blog, and I can see that one of the best parts of this challenge is going to be seeing all of the close-up progress pictures of these beautiful samplers! It really is like being in a guild together where each month you get to see each others projects and show and tell! Some of these samplers I have pined over for years with only a simple model photo in the catalog. But to be able to see all of the details now, how wonderful is that?
I did a deep stash dive recently and discovered yet another SL kit that I had forgotten I owned. It is the charming little Ann Greanawalt. I started Ann several years ago and then put her aside and completely forgot about her. She has languished for such a long time that sadly she now has a crease across her middle. I have worked on it somewhat, but the linen has faded in that area. So, although I will be able to get the fold out, the damage has been done. THIS IS A WARNING! Be sure to roll your sampler-don't fold it! This is the sad result of careless folding!
I will finish her and frame her. The crease won't bother me that much. But hopefully it will serve to remind me to take better care.
I have worked a little on AED also. I won't really get going on this for a couple of weeks due to Christmas projects that have priority. But here is my progress so far:
That little over-one sailor of 35ct! Whew!
That is my progress so far.
And here is what the finished sampler looks like.
