American Quaker Sampler stitched by Krista

Thank you and progress!

I was so excited when the postman knocked on our door this morning:  for there among a pile of mail was my amazing prize:  thank you so much Nicola - and Marsha, I will so enjoy sewing this beautiful sampler!:
I cannot remember when I last won anything, and to win this Scarlet letter chart is just FANTASTIC!

I thought I would also show you how my Log cabin is progressing:
In order to personalise this sampler I have added the year and my initials in place of numbers above the cabin.  I have also substituted variegated threads for the cabin roof and the grass. I always prefer using variegated threads on large areas, like grass, as it appears softer and more natural - in my opinion anyway.

I do so enjoy checking every day on all the new progress reports on both the Blogs - there is so much beautiful work being sewn - I am in awe.  And once again, thank you Nicola - for everything!

Your log cabin sampler is coming along beautifully!

So pleased that the postman called.

Your log cabin is so pretty and I think it an excellent idea to use variegated threads on the rook and grass.
