Ruthy Rogers



I mentioned in my post yesterday about starting Ruthy Rogers. After seeing Barbara G's Ruthy (the photos are Barbara's Ruthy) I have not been able to get this sampler out of my mind.



This is way out of my comfort zone but I am going to give her a try. Bob of Winderwood Farm is joining me and if anyone else would like to stitch with us you would be very welcome.

I know that Marsha and Barbara are there for us if help is needed.



I meant to include this photo in my post about EK yesterday, here I am with my sisters and Mother.

So tempting! I have another one of the Marblehead samplers in progress, Hannah Stacy, an online class. It is resting in the WIP pile until I feel up to tackling her again.

Lovely picture of you, your sisters, and Mother

I'm scared of Ruthy. lol! I keep wondering if I could convert her to little x's. I love that pic of you with your sisters and mother!

Ruthy is beautiful but is beyond my level of stitching. I will cheer you from the sidelines.

I love the picture of you with your mom and sisters :)

Beautiful, glamorous family.
Ruthy is tempting...what a magnificent challenge she would be.

I know Ruthy is way way.....out of my comfort zone but.......I am going to give her a try! It won't be the first time I had to google stitches or ask for help! I ordered my supplies and pattern today from Traditional stitches. Looking forward to a fun challenge !

Love the photo of your family. What was the special occasion? Brother's just aren't the same and my brother's are usually wearing hunting clothes and hats. It wouldn't be the same kind of photo. But love them all the same.......

Theresa said...

Brave soul to make an attempt that's a little scary! When I finish the 3 I've started,
I am going ahead with Rachel Jarratt, (due to your inspiring finish), even though that is beyond ME!
Lovely photo...you all have the same eyes : ) it looks like the occasion is a wedding. Wonderful memories!

What a lovely family picture. You are a beautiful group. Ruthy is very nice as well.

Stitch Wizard said...

I just totally love Ruthy and I am going to get her and try stitching this with you. I am a little intimidated as well, but I have looked at this for awhile and have just loved it too. It is just beautiful!!! Thank you Nicola and Bob for the invite. It would be fun stitching with you and anyone else who might want to give this a try!!

Oh gosh! I have so many projects going right now that it doesn't make sense to join you...but I will watch from the sidelines and cheer you all on. Will be fun to see the progress reports. Lovely picture Nicola of you, your sisters and Mum...you are all so beautiful.

Stitch Wizard said...

P.S. Yes the photo of you Nicola and your mom and sisters is really nice and you all looks so beautiful in this photo too. How wonderful to have such a lovely family!

Debbie Bauer said...

Some disappointing news. I ordered Ruthy from Traditional stitches in Calgary. They are out of stock and won't receive their order for 3 weeks. I suppose it will take just as long from Martha. So I guess I will be starting behind everyone on the SAL.
Nicola your family picture is beautiful. Love yours and your mom's hats!

Vous allez pouvoire faire la magnifique broderie merci de partage la belle foto Marie-Claire

Nicola, what a beautiful group of women. I covet your hat. As for Ruthy being intimidating, she really is not difficult, just ... well ... different. All of the areas filled in with satin and stem filling are outlined in simple counted backstitch. Once you have stitched the outlines, the filling-in is really quite fun. The chart indicates which direction to stitch the filling-in.

Stitch Wizard said...

Thank you Marsha! I will be ordering my chart from you tomorrow when we get our check deposited. I am very excited to be joining Nicola, Debbie and Robert and I hope many others here will join in as well. This is such a beautiful sampler and has many of my favorite colors in it too!

I found a tutorial online about basic filling stitches here:

http://www.needlenthread.com/2006/07/basic-embroidery-stitches-filling-stitches-i.html

The author on this particular site also has tutorials on stem stitch for filling.
(I hope it's ok to post this. Just thought it might help...)
(Not that I am going to do Ruthy Rogers myself...yet. I have three SL WIPS going right now!
My husband will think I have lost my mind! (like he needs more proof. : )

On the other hand...gee, those tutorials don't look so bad....hmmmm.... : )

Stitch Wizard said...

Thank you so much Theresa!!!

I look forward to seeing everyone's photo updates on Ruthy, she is such a lovely sampler. Love the photo of the "girls"!
