It was a very windy day in Marsh Lake. We had lost electricity for a while - no computer, no TV and I was able to finish another motif (yey for me)!
That's the last one on the top row. It took me 4 hours and 23 minutes to stitch it. Why I'm telling you this? Well, here is my brilliant idea. I would love to finish this sampler as quickly as I can and start on 1790 Ann Kirby Sampler. The chart must be out of print because it took me forever to find it. Eventually I did, thanks to the eBay. Debbie spotted that chart in my stash and she would love to stitched it too and I do not mind to give it to her as soon as I finish stitching it. So, because there is out there an aching heart of another stitcher I have to hurry up since I've promised myself that I will work only on one sampler at the time. For me there is no better motivation than a challenge so here it goes.
Here is the whole thing with crossed out finished motifs.
As you see I have ten more motifs to stitch plus writing. Can you guess how long it will take me to finish the remaining part of the sampler? Please put your answer in comments to this post in hours and minutes. I will measure my stitching time from now on and the person with the most accurate timing will win a $50 gift certificate to The Scarlet Letter. Since this blog is all about fun, celebrating and giving I will pick the winner on my birthday, July 16th.
So long my friends,
