American Quaker Sampler stitched by Krista

Tuesday, 4 June 2013



A framed finish, thanks to Lynn's in Madison, WI.  Antonia Gonzalez should be available in a fortnight.  The graph is printed in full color to make the counted satin stitches easier to manipulate.  It would be nice to be more productive with the needle, but this time of year beckons me uncontrollably toward the gardens which are spectacular in southeastern Wisconsin.  Love to every one of you with or without dirty fingernails like mine!

Wow! Beautiful colors, and all the gorgeous satin stitch! This one is right up my alley!

BTW, I just looked and I have dirty fingernails from yardwork yesterday. My grandmother would be appalled! Guess I'll go give them a good scrubbing. ;o)

Peace & Love,

I can't wait to have this chart. The colours and design are so different to what I already have and this will make an interesting addition.

Antonia Gonzalez should be available in two weeks. Fran, despite my nail brush I'm just this dirty old farm girl! If my grandmother could speak English, she'd probably approve of the state of my hands. I'll try to post some photos of my gardens. Have you checked out the filthy farm girl website? They have lovely soaps, with naughty names.
