What an Awesome Birthday Celebration!

Good Morning -

I am Bobbi and I live in the USA in Ohio.  Our last day of February is dreary with a few snow flurries, no big deal at all.

I have been away from blogging for a few months and just started surfing around again about a week ago.  This Scarlet Letter SAL was popping up everywhere!  At first I thought you had to stitch The Manifesto.  Well, I sure wasn't signing up for that!  Then I realized you could choose your Scarlet Letter sampler(s).  Then I realized that Dorothy Walpole, who I fell in love with and started last fall, was a Scarlet Letter sampler.  And here I am with great anticipation, but a bad finishing track record.  Maybe I can learn some lessons in that department here, while having fun looking at all the beautiful photos and chatting with fellow stitchers.

Here is my little start on Dorothy:
The overall view on a dreary day.

I am using the over dyed silks that Attic Needlework kitted up.  I am a pastel person and have trouble stepping away from that most of the time.

I can't tell you how much fun I think this is and I am pleased to see the great participation from around the globe.  A really cool idea.  Thanks, Nicola and Jo!

Welcome to the SL fun, Bobbi! Your Dorothy is looking wonderful ... love your colors.

A very warm welcome to the group Bobbi, we are all having so much fun.

Dorothy is our most popular sampler and you can see why, she is a beauty.

Hopefully we can encourage you to finish her and she can hang in our gallery but more importantly in your home.
