THANK you Evalina

Back on July 16th I was the winner in Evalina "my brilliant idea" contest to guess how many hours it would take her to complete her design and I guessed the closest. Her VERY generous prize was a $50 GC for any Scarlet Letter merchandise. Well, it took me a long long while to choose, but my prize came in the mail yesterday. Here is what I ordered Evalina!!!!!  photo ScarletLetter_zpse2f40b22.jpg I chose Emma Miles because I have seen so many of you stitch this and I think it is so beautiful. I picked Rebecca Robinson for the same reason. I am partial to designs with houses in them, and flowers, and this sampler fits the bill wonderfully. And I chose Mary Ann Michell because it has a house, it has the floral border, and the verse is lovely, but best of all I was amazed that it was stitched by a 10 year old girl. It is so sunny and cheery looking too. So thank you ever so much Evalina for helping me add to my ever growing collection of Scarlet Letter charts. I believe I have 8 of them now. I am working on Dorothy Walpole, but haven't stitched much on her for months. I have had some health issues and have not done much of any stitching, but am better now, and hope to get back to the needle and thread very soon. Nikki

Nikki, congratulations on a beautiful selection. I have not seen anyone stitching on Mary Ann Mitchell yet and have been looking at that pattern. I will look forward on seeing your updates.
