Many thanks to Nicola for sponsoring this wonderful blog. I am having a wonderful time reading everyone's posts and seeing all your progress. Of course, my stash of Scarlet Letter charts is rapidly increasing, along with many of the you I'm sure. Those of you doing the Manifesto Stitch Along are inspiring. I haven't ordered this chart..............yet!
I am making very pokey progress on my two samplers........life is just getting in the way. I am working An All Was For An Appil on a beautiful 36 count Rock Quarry linen. It's a bit blotchy (in a good way) bluish gray. For some reason my camera is totally washing out the colors. Perhaps I'll have to see if I can get my old camera fired up again as it's colors were a bit closer to normal.
Jane Atkinson is also languishing in my stitching basket. I haven't been able to put a stitch into her in a couple of months. Of course, she is on a 40 count fabric which I have trouble seeing without using my magnifier. I wish I didn't love the way the stitches look on this fabric as I'd like to make stitching easy on my eyes! I just love the beautiful colors in this one.
