Working by candle light

I wasn't planning to chart this sampler (unsigned Continental, dated 1829) but the power was out for ten hours yesterday and there wasn't much I could with the designs on the computer, so I reverted to the old fashioned way...candle light, paper and ink.  The flashlight helped too!

Oooh! another lovely sampler to look forward to! and, are those roses I see? lovely!
The candlelight is gorgeous and gives such atmosphere. I'm impressed! (talk about remaining authentic : )

You must have had a real feel for how the original stitcher worked on this piece. Such dedication!
