Lady & the (still unfinished) castle

Hello everyone,

I'm still working on the castle:

My thanks to Fiona who pointed out in a comment to my last post that what I thought was a blue hill is actually water.

(Not the best photo. I'm still taking pictures by holding up the piece in front of my laptop.)

A couple of people have asked if I've named the lady. I don't tend to do that, but the name that came immediately to mind is Miranda ("O brave new world, that has such people in't" -- this is my first attempt at blogging and my first group stitching project (other than one visit to Sampler Gathering in Plymouth and a set of workshops at Colonial Williamsburg held in the late 1990's in conjunction with a 17th century British embroidery exhibition; maybe some of you attended too?)). Thanks again to Nicola and Jo for bringing us together.

I have so much admiration for this sampler. I hope to stitch her one day but it will be over two. Over one is an amazing acheivement.
