Hi Everyone,

Thank you to Nicola for setting up this celebration of stitching in honour of her special birthday.  I live in  the northwest highlands of Scotland.  This will be my first Scarlet Letter design and I have chosen to stitching Janet Burnet.  Not only is it a Scottish Sampler but it was the name of my favourite aunt.
Fiona's Stitching and Stuff

I plan on starting my sampler at the start of February. I would truly love to use the required silks, but at this time of year, ££ are needed elsewhere. I also plan on stitching it on 40ct as I have some in my stash. Sorry, about the flash on the picture, but at this time of year, using the flash is essential.

Excellent choice! It is a very lovely sampler.

I can't wait to see this one progress. Being Scottish as well I wanted to stitch a Scottish sampler as well. I have chosen Flamestitch which the SL website says may be Scottish. So that is good enough for me especially as the colours are so fabulous.

How nice to be stitching a sampler named after your Aunt.

I hope you get your threads soon as I am looking forward to seeing lots of close ups as you progress.

I I love this one too. This challenge is wonderful, it is such an opportunity to see some wonderful samplers and share in the stitching. We seem to have a good number of Scottish participants, my friend Anne, also stitching Diligence, is Scottish too. Irene xxx

Hello Fiona. How lovely that you can stitch a sampler with your aunt's name. I too am Scottish and would dearly love to do a Scottish sampler.
