The Harriot Boardman Sampler is Finished!


Here she is:

The Harriot Boardman Sampler
I actually finished her a few days ago, but have only just had a chance to post.

The grass got a bit wonky there in places and didn't exactly follow Harriot's curve, but I stuck to it as best I could.

This was a challenging, but very enjoyable sampler to stitch!

Very nice finish, Erica. I have this design on order. Did you use silks or cottons?

My motto is don't sweat the small stuff...like blades of grass!

On to another Scarlet Letter? Have a great weekend.


Jenny said...

Erica, Your sampler is beautiful! Congratulations on a wonderful finish. I love the deer and grass and I applaud you for accomplishing that. I will have to try a sampler like that soon. Do you have another Scarlet Letter sampler in mind? Have a great weekend.

Gwen said...

Margaret said...

She is gorgeous! I love your choice for the next SL sampler too!

Cindy L said...

Congratulations on your finish. The deer and grass look wonderful.

Krista said...

Well done! Congrats!

Kim Hummel said...

Congratulations. Your finish looks lovely. You are brave to go with the dark colored linen

Merry Wind Farm said...

Erica, your sampler is just beautiful! I imagine it was quite challenging as dark linen is much harder to see. Great job!

Ellen said...

Wow, gorgeous! This sampler looks great on that fabric!

Love your new SL sampler, very unique cat!


Nicola said...

Oh Erica this is simlply stunning.

I woud find the dark linen a struggle to stitch on but it really makes the colours pop. Well done to you for using it.

Now and again it is good to stretch oneself with a sampler and master another stitch.

Hang her with pride.

Christine said...

Lanie said...

Congratulations on your finish, Erica--it's beautiful! And your freehand stitching is perfect!

Peace and Love,
(who hangs her head sheepishly because her own Harriot remains unfinished after many years)
