Update on Ann Smith and Manifesto

Ann is coming along nicely, although it rather slowly with all the over one:

This portion has taken me quite a fews days of stitching.  Actually probably about two weeks as some nights haven't been the best to get in some stitching.  When I can find time to work on her though, it actually goes rather quickly.  I did notice, just before posting this picture, that the leaf work on Adam was done in the wrong color (UGH!!), but I decided to leave it.  Taking out over one stitching can be quite a pain.  Here is a picture of the entire piece so far:

I also started working on the Manifesto.  I am going to stitch this on Wednesday nights, but unfortunately things got in the way the past couple of weeks, so was only able to work on it one night.  

I had entertained thoughts of following Holly and starting over on 40 count gauze, but then common sense took over and I decided to just keep going on the Jobelan.  I have to say though that I will be coveting Holly's when it's finished.

Deb - Ann Smith is absolutely gorgeous! You have a start on Manifesto and that is what is important. Enjoy your week ! Mel

All right, Deb...are you saying I don't have any common sense? Ha Ha! It is a known fact that I have no sense at all!

I was so hoping you would come along to the funny farm with me;)

Your work is lovely!

Happy Stitches,

-Holly in VA

Great work on your sampler. Good luck on the Manifesto!!! Wow, I have to just shake my head at that one. Those of you who are tackling this are in a different stitching world and caliper than I am. Just looking at that giant frame makes me shudder.

Good luck to you and all who plan to tackle that this year.

Great progress on Ann Smith Deb. You know, I have always loved this sampler.

Good start on Manifesto. It's looking good.

Oh Deb she is stunning. I would never have the patience for all that over one. You have my admiration.

Beautiful Deb !Love your one over one scene (not for me...!)

Ann Smith is just beautiful! I think she's another one that'll be added to my growing list of "must stitch" samplers. Love the colors and the design work in this. (Probably a technical term for the designs in a sampler - motifs?)
Can't wait to watch Manifesto grow as you continue to work on that as well!
Happy stitching today, Deb - hope you get a lot done.

Ann Smith is looking great. I think I would have done the same as you and left the over 1 on Adam. The more I see Manifesto, the more I covet it.
