A New Start and A Giveaway

Marsha has such an amazing portfolio of charted samplers that it is so hard to choose a project. After much dithering here is my new start.

If you can guess which sampler it is email me (nicola.parkman@gmail.com) for a chance to win the chart of the gorgeous Elizabeth Short.

Talking of Marsha's portfolio - I had the time to look at my antique sampler purchase with a view to stitching it for myself. The colours are still vibrant and the condition good but my mind still boggled at what is required to replicate it.

I take my hat off to Marsha for her talent in giving us these beautiful samplers to stitch.

You must never get up from your stitching chair. I can't believe you are already this far along.

OH......... I sure hope you decide to reproduce your antique sampler. It sure is a beauty and I for one would be the first to hop on board to stitch her.

Keep us posted.....
