I am really excited and pleased
My DH gave me Elizabeth Brain for Christmas as he really likes it. As you know, I am knew to all of this stitching and so it is a wee bit daunting to tackle this - especially as I have to learn new stitches and I thought it would be really helpful to see the original work which is in the V & A museum in London but not currently on display. I phoned the V & A yesterday to ask if I could see the sampler. The answer was yes...but not until the autumn as they are currently moving the textile department. I am so excited to know that I can see it. So, this sampler might have to wait until then before I start it. In the meantime I can practice some stitches and work on other Scarlet Letter samplers. I want to run before I walk when I see the lovely samplers folk are working on but aren't quite within my skill level...yet!
