My name is Laura and I live in Williamsburg, Va. I’ve been doing needlework of one kind or another since I was a child but now find most of my time is spent with samplers. I gravitate toward large, time consuming, frequently reproduction samplers and Scarlet Letter really fits that bill.
Right now, I have several SL samplers languishing in my finish pile crying out for attention but I think I will start with the one that is the closest to completion.
I don’t remember exactly when I started Ann Grimshaw but I do know she has been monopolizing space on one of my best lap frames for at least 2 years. I would give her some sporadic attention when I had a few spare days once in a while but that’s just not getting it done! As you can see, she is about half way done and I would love to see her hanging in my Quaker room in the coming year. So, she moves to the front of the list in the new year.
I have been reading most of your blogs for a number of years now but did not have a blog myself. I recently started blogging at For Love of the Needle. Nicola inspired me to do that as well.
It’s been a real learning curve for me but I am enjoying it more than I thought I would. Who knows what other new and exciting things will come our way in Nicola’s Scarlett Letter Year??!! Laura
