Ann Thompson - The Oval Sampler

Marsha is having problems with her new computer (I think we have all been there and know how frustrating it can be) so has sent me some photos of Ann Thompson to share with you.

It is very interesting to see how Marsha reproduces a sampler.

It is about 30% done. Isn't it a beauty, I already have a place for mine to hang. Talk about putting horse before the cart LOL !!

Wouldn't you like to be sitting alongside Marsha chatting and watching as she works. One can dream :o))

I have thought about reproducing my Lepzig 1812 sampler, but don't know if there would be any interest. Thank you Marsha for all your time and effort you take in each and everyone of your reproductions. Where would we be today, without "The Scarlet Letter".

It really is wonderful to see how Marsha reproduces a sampler. I can't wait for this one -- it's such a beauty! Thanks Marsha, and thank you too, Nicola!

Thank you Marsha and Nicola for posting photos of this beautiful sampler. I already have plans for stitching this one too. Now to find that perfect frame.

This sampler is such a beautiful one......thank you Marsha for all your hard work. I am so enjoying stitching your samplers, they are all truly lovely.

Thank you, Nicola, for posting the pictures for Marsha.
Oh my! ... I'm in love ... for so many reasons ... cannot wait!
Sitting and chatting with Marsha at her lovely home while she is reproducing a sampler ... priceless!

Vera said...

So cool. Thank you for the look/see Marsha! And good luck with your computer woes...not fun, I know!! Can't wait to see the final results!

I can't wait to get this one! Oval and with a Christian theme--perfect!

Ooohhhh!! Can't wait, this is a beauty. I wonder what the size will be, I have an antique oval frame that I could use!

Theresa said...

Sit and chat with Marsha while she charts,
are you kidding me? I would like to move IN with her!

(she might not like it though if I brought all the kids.
And two dogs. And two cats. And two bunnies! : )

can't wait to see this sampler, also!

I am anxiously awaiting this sampler. I don't think that any chart has excited me as much in a long time!!

Scarlet Letter said...

Theresa- no kids, but dogs, cats and bunnies are welcome. Mary Thompson is coming along. If the storms don't blow off the roof tonight, I'll make some more progress on Thompson.

Thanks for the photographs. Looks like another beautiful sampler in the making.
