This is really lovely. I like the little touches of colour on the snake and hair. You have completed such a lot too. Irene xxx

You are doing a beautiful job, Ilse. I will watch your progress on this lovely sampler. I have always loved Red-work samplers. They are very striking when framed.

Your sampler is so beautiful! What is the finished size? It will be so pretty hanging on the wall, maybe in a dining room. Keep up your pretty stitching! Kay Lynn
