A Happy Dance for Elizabeth Shephard

I'm not sure what dances were popular when Elizabeth stitched her sampler in 1820 but I would have doing one with her this weekend!

I started her in January 2015 as part of the DUCJC2015 on Day 14 then I stitched on her each IHSW weekend since then as the photo collage shows.  She is stitched on the 30 count linen and with the AVAS silks provided in the kit.

I also added a little personalisation to the design.  The kit was a gift from Nicola for all the help I gave her in setting up these Scarlet Letter Blogs so I added our pairs of initials rather than the charted ones.  I might add my signature and the date to the bottom too.  I always forget!

Hi , I am nearly finished her, really enjoying the stitching, but am looking forward to next sampler with more colours.
