Happy to say that I just put the last stitch in Scottish Sampler Circa 1740. This was a fun stitch and I love the two birds at the bottom. So cute. This was stitched on 32 count linen using DMC threads. I made a few minor changes, stitching one row in Smyrna stitch instead of cross stitch and moved a few things over by a couple of spaces. I love the geometric designs on either side (Ikat-like) and the big flower centered in the bottom half. And the crowns…lots to love about this sampler! Here is an overall shot and a close up of the two birds at the bottom.
Now I need/want to get back to Elizabeth Mitchell. I am so tempted to start another one as well…I’ll see.
I may have spoken too quickly about visiting the Scarlet Letter in May. Turns out that Marsha will be away for the month of May. There is only one day in our travels that I can fit in a visit…am waiting to hear back from Marsh whether anyone will be on site so that I may enhance my stash. Fingers crossed (while not stitching).
Gorgeous day here in PA. I left work at Noon to enjoy the afternoon. I’m thinking some iced coffee on my patio and then back to stitching.
Enjoy the weekend!
