I have really been enjoying seeing everyone's projects, or planned projects. It certainly is dangerous reading the posts since my own wishlist just keeps getting longer. But I certainly have enough to keep me busy for the moment.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I'm starting off with the smallest and easiest samplers I have in my stash. After finishing Elizabeth Shepherd, I pulled out the Miniature Sampler 1840. I bought this as a kit and am using the silk ( I think it is AVAS) and 25-ct unbleached linen supplied. It is stitched over one thread. Here's my progress today. I think I should have it finished this weekend.
Next up will be Elizabeth Raysor 1834. This is a Pennsylvania German sampler, which is one of my favorite styles of samplers. (My other favorites are Dutch (Fresian, Marken and Hoorn), and Mexican and Spanish samplers.)
I had already started ER, so I have a bit of a head start. Here she is as of today:
She was also acquired in a kit, with silk threads and 35-ct linen.
Off to get in a few more stitches before bedtime!
