Post for Barbara H

Happy Stitching New Year Everyone!

Here is my progress on EK 1653. I am having a terrific time stitching the patterns on her.

I thought the pink might get overwhelming for me but I have decided this sampler reminds me of my Grand Kate.

Kate loves pink and green. She turned 5 years old last September. Kate likes to stitch too. We have worked on stitching/lacing cards that are made out of wood and paper.

We started out with the running stitch and quickly moved onto the blanket stitch. Brilliant girl! J EK 1653 will eventually go to Kate.

I need to put EK 1653 away for a while; must get back to working on QSD projects.

Amazing progress Barbara, she looks absolutely stunning.

So nice that you have a grandaughter to share your love of the needle.

All my QTSD patterns have arrived and your charts and instructions are so well written, it will be a joy to stitch them all.

I love the pink and Kate is a lucky girl if this sampler will be hers one day. It is lovely that you are teaching her to stitch - a skill that she will have for life and I am sure will bring her so much enjoyment.

What a lovely sampler! I am so glad to see this stitched. The Scarlet Letter website photo doesn't begin to do it justice.
