Mary Ann Hutton progress

Mary Ann is no longer a Christmas sampler. I switched out the Christmas carol verse for another. This verse is actually on the Scarlet Letter sampler Simile. I saw the last two phrases on another sampler and when I was doing some on line research to find a possible origin of the verse the Scarlet Letter website popped up. Since this is my first sampler I want to display it all year and not have it be seasonal. I now am working on adding some of the remaining motifs to both side of the new verse.

Happy stitching all,

this is such a beautiful work. I am amazed how you could figure out how to switch out the verse! Julierose

That must have taken a lot of charting but a brilliant idea for a year round sampler. Irene xxx
