The Sheperdess Miniature circa 1790

I have always seen the sweet little miniatures on Marsha's website and admired them.  I recently needed to stitch a thank you gift for my cousin and thought I'd take a peek at the miniatures.  I decided on Shepherd and Shepherdess. Circa 1790.  This is, of course the shepherdess, though by looking at her dress and headdress, she must have been a high-class shepherdess!  You can see I am almost done.  Started it on Saturday and should finish tomorrow .  She is so sweet and only 4" square.
I know she will be my first Finish!  I will be stitching her companion too.  Kay Kynn

Kay Lynn - these are so sweet and the pair are ones I had not noticed before. I am sure your cousin will be delighted with them.

How about that ... another sampler I have missed on the SL website. Thank you, Kay Lynn, for sharing your work on this sweet sampler. What a lovely "thank you" gift!

So pretty. Hadn't realized how small these miniatures are. I'll need to look at them again (oh no! more to order...).
