Beautiful, Nicola! My grandmother who taught me to stitch was named Dorothea. I think of her every time I see this sampler. One day I'll stitch this to honor her!

Thank you for sharing your lovely stitching...can't wait to see what you'll do next!

It's beautiful Nicola and you are just the fastest stitcher!! Can't wait to see what you start stitching next. I know that it's a hard decision with all the beautiful SL samplers. You almost want to start on all of them.

Dona Dorothea is delightful!

You are a true turbo stitcher.

Love Mexican samplers - always so much going on.

Conratulations!

Oh I love it! I cannot wait until I can stitch that one day.

That only took you a month? Your needles must be smokin' hot!

Gabi said...

Such a gorgeous finish. Love those colors. Congrats :)

Kathy said...

WOWZA! You are one fast stitcher. This turned out so pretty and I bet you can't wait to get her framed and on your wall. BTW, have you picked out a special wall for all your SL samplers you're planning to stitch this year? At the rate you're stitching you'll probably have 12 or more ready for hanging. Congratulations and great job!

Rowyn said...

How have you managed to finish this one so quickly with a new grandson that needs lots of cuddles too - well done Nicola, it is totally gorgeous!! x

Congratulations on a fantastic finish!

Ellen said...

Your are amazing, Nicola! You have stitched another beautiful sampler in record time. Notonly did you stitch it in just a few weeks but that time frame also included Christmas and the new addition to your family.

I've been wondering what would be next up, but I think I know....the piece for sweet Archie. Right?
