Post for Barbara G - Mary Hurst

I have just completed Mary Hurst. It is very pink and little girlish. I saw a chalk drawing in my neighborhood the other day that looked just like the queen. No crown but everything else was pretty much the same.

I have one comment about the kit. On the list of threads to be used it appeared that only one skein of all the colours was necessary but I found out that colour 111 needed at least 2. I could not get another skein from my supplier so I substituted. I was not happy to do that but it looks OK.

I do not have a picture of the completed piece but a number of months ago I send in a picture of part of it and it looks more or less the same. The top bit was not done but it doesn’t photograph well anyway. I sadly do not know how to get a photo onto the computer and my husband has been in hospital so until he gets home no picture.

I am trying to decide what to do next. All I am sure of is that it will be 17th century.

This sampler is very beautiful I'm sure even with the thread problem it is stunning. Deciding on what to stitch next is the hard part! Hope your husband comes home soon.
