I’m not sure how long I’ve been working on this one, I pulled it out several months ago and have been adding a few stitches now and then, sometimes only 10 minutes at a time but it all paid off eventually! I’ve literally thrown this in the frame to try to get a picture while there was light – it gets dark so early these days. It will be hanging on a white wall but for the sake of a more interesting picture I’ve hung on a wall with color (the master bath) for now.
This is from The Sampler Girl and called Lady Washington’s Sampler. I’ve stitched it on 30ct R&R alabaster and mostly used the recommended threads. I have hopes of stitching a few more of Tanya’s First Ladies samplers but I get distracted so easily. I’m also thinking of branching out a bit and have added this little fairy to my stash basket but before I start or finish anything else I need to get my workroom cleaned. I haven’t seen the top of my table in over a week and it takes me forever to find a thing which makes me grumpy. So I’m going in….if you don’t hear from me soon I was swallowed by the big scary mess!
