What a tough decision trying to decide which Scarlet Letter sampler to begin first! And reading through the posts and seeing what everyone else is doing, doesn't make it any easier.
So far I
have located 5 unstitched Scarlet Letter samplers living at my house,
but I'm expecting a package in the mail any day now which will bring me 6
the New England sampler done on the traditional green linsey woolsey. It
reflects my home region of New Hampshire where I was born and lived
until the age of 24. I'm fairly certain I'm starting this one first -

name is Donna and I'm not the only Donna participating so I'll sign
myself Donna L. in Virginia which is how I sign my yahoogroups posts. I
also blog at Needleworker Not in Paradise which I've been doing for over
9 years! I love samplers and also counted canvaswork. I dabble in all
types of needlework, but I always come back to the samplers.
have two kits from the 1980s that are OOP that I plan on doing, one is
the Abigail Dunlap sampler that I bought years ago at Strawberry Banke
in Portsmouth, NH. The other is Ann L. Brown which has these pine trees
and lions that just tickle my fancy.
