More of Dorothy

Dorothy in her glory!!

A little bit closer, you can see the Rice Stitches better in this one, that row is so pretty!!

And here she is, a little more of the overall effect.  I have to say that I am more and more loving this sampler.  She is just so pretty and really so much fun to work on.  I worked on it last night while watching the Super Bowl and I finished this first black line of the bargello and then worked up to the next rows.  There are four rows above it and then another black one and I did all four of those.  Then I will go down below.  On the left side where I have stopped with the border vine is about where the bargello/flame stitch ends.  So there is a nice area, not too big or too small.  Then after that area comes the beautiful floral area, I think it is a little less than half of the sampler.

As I said, I am loving this sampler and to work on it is really a joy.  Thank you to all of you for your posts, all the tips and ideas I have gotten are great.

And a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Nicola!!!!
