Elizabeth Cox - A finish



Elizabeth Cox is finished. 


This sampler is an important milestone for me.



The very first time I visited the Scarlet Letter website I spotted this sampler and thought "WOW" quickly followed by "I will never be able to stitch that"  but a few years later I have !!!



Being part of the online community has taught me so much and knowing that there is always someone there to guide and encourage has given me the confidence to try.



Thank you to my "pin" pals there is stitch in this one made by each and every one of you.

Nicola,
What a lovely sampler, Miss Cox turned out to be, but then I knew it would. Thank you for sharing all the wonderful close ups of her, she is stunning. Your stitching has become something to marvel at, the details popping off the linen canvas. You deciding to make each piece your own, is very inspiring. I can't wait to see what the New Year brings.

Wow, this is absolutely stunning Nicola! Love the specialty stitches you have included.(French knots for shrubbery) Did you add any bullion knots? The verse is a lovely tribute!

I'll say it again, "You are a wonder!" You seem to "zip" through your samplers and complete them to perfection.
This one is exquisite and a
work to be treasured. You pay
those you love great honor.
