EK 1653 and Ellenor Wykcs

The weekend has passed with a bar of chocolate and a tub of ice cream in the house remaining uptouched !!! This is unheard of.

 I have been so "in to" both samplers that the evenings passed without a visit to the kitchen.

Here is a close up of the latest but not the last band on EK

I have also made a start on Ellenor's next band.

I have been visiting the gallery regularly and have found a few more must stitch samplers. There are now 398 different designs shown and there are only  two where we have been unable to source a photograph -  Miniature Noah's Ark and Betsy Richardson.

Can you have a rummage through your stash to see if you have these OOPs tucked away or maybe ask your stitching friends.

If you know of any other designs that we may have missed please let us know. Sally recently found one 
that had escaped us.

Nicola, I have a photo of my unframed Betsy Richardson. I'll put it in an email.

Beautiful Nicola. Are you stitching these both on one giant piece of linen?

Cindy L said...

Just gorgeous! I just noticed too that it looks like you are stitching both on the same large piece of linen. Such wonderful colors and exquisite stitching!
