I can not believe I have been part of Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year blog for a month now! I am enjoying every minute of it. As I watch everyone's samplers grow week by week it is such a treat! My work on Grace is coming along nicely. I so enjoy stitching on her daily, along with Elizabeth Simon. The Algerian Eyelet section on the verse is very tedious, but once I get into a rhythm, it doesn't seem like it takes so long! It's hard to see the effect of the AE though, with the dark blue-green silk. Grace's teacher should have chosen a lighter silk, so it can at least be seen! I try to think of her as I stitch, wondering just how old she was, and where in England she lived. Did she stitch most of the day; and, was she allowed to play like children today after her stitching lesson was finished? I love to muse!
If anyone out there in blogger land wants to help me with posting, let me know. I don't know how to make my post longer like most of you do, adding more than one WIP. HELP! Kay Lynn silkstitcher Chattanooga
