Yes, yes, I know - I'd made all those resolutions about not buying anything else until I'd finished a couple more of the pieces I'd already started. But I fell in love :) - I was at my LNS, decided to browse just for a moment at the Scarlet Letter charts there, and was smitten with Janet Burnet, a Scottish sampler from 1830. She isn't quite all kitted up yet - I have some of the silk for her and will add the rest before long, and I still haven't decided on the linen, perhaps something from my stash (she's a modest size). But I thought you all might like to join me in admiring her: the photo below is from the SL website, though I do recommend checking out her page on the site, as the close-ups really show off the gorgeous colours.
See - How could I possibly resist?
