Update on Etchell's Sampler

Here is an update on Marie's sampler (Please ignore the wrinkles for now).  The flowers and tree are looking great. Thanks Candace for your great model stitching!

Can't wait to see this beautiful sampler done.  Look for more flowers, a basket, and birds.

Have a good week and take time to stitch!

A sneak peek at a new reproduction sampler by Maria Etchells:

Soon you will be able to see the whole verse. 

Just got back from the Shepherd's Bush Retreat and had loads of fun and met many new stitching friends.  Thanks to everyone for including me!

Another sneak peek at Richards Sampler

Here is another sneak peek of the Richards sampler.  The grass will eventually be satin stitched.    The grass is turning out to be a very close match to the original.

Adam and Eve Sampler

Here is a sampler I purchased some years back and had forgotten totally about.   It is Adam and Eve and unfortunately the name is gone.  It is quite bright.  The sampler was wrought in 1834, and has some religion advice.  I can't say this is my favorite Adam and Eve.  It does have some wonderful motifs.
