My third attempt at stitching this sampler has definitely been the charm. Here is my progress as of this morning.
I have a problem with the lower leaves on the flowers in the three blue vases. I've drawn arrows below to show the problem. On the chart, only the flower on the far left has this filled in and the color doesn't look anything like that on the photo. The other two flowers don't have any symbols there, but on the model photo, there is definitely some stitching. I've tried unsuccessfully to find a photo of the original sampler. Please let me know if you have any ideas where I can find a good photo of the antique. I've looked in Carol Humphrey's book and also at the Fitzwilliam Museum's website but to no avail..
I'm putting Ann aside for a few weeks while I work on some other projects, but she'll be back next month.
