Cutting it close!

Hello fellow stitchers!  I cant believe all the beautiful progress that has been made within the last year on the Scarlet Letter samplers!  I have finished 2, one during the challenge and 1 just before. 
First up is American Band Sampler stitched on 40ct along with AVS silks, some modified to my liking.  I enjoyed practicing the queen stitch on this one!
Next is one of my absolute favorites, and I am just over the moon with this one!
Dona Doreathea stitched on 45ct Vintage Meadow Rue Lakeside Linen along with my conversion of overdyed silks-- Gloriana, Belle Soie, Silk N Colors, Florimel.  Sorry the pic isnt that great, but I do have more on my blog www.lovetostitch-onestitchatatime.blogspot.com.  I highly recommend this sampler to anyone, the colors are just fabulous and the motifs are wonderful.  Alot of texture in this one.
I enjoyed working on the SDW Band Sampler, however I got sidetracked with this one and I am itching to get it back out now that I see Krista (Juststitchingalong) has completed her gorgeous sampler.  You never know, I might just go crazy and pull it out :))))
Until next time~!  Enjoy your day :)

Congratulations. Now, be crazy and enjoy SDW. With the bands not being wide, you will finish her before you know it......

Beautiful finishes! I love Dona Doreathea too. 45 ct is super tiny. That's amazing you were able to stitch on it!!
