Two New Starts

Hi All,

I have started two of the samplers I mentioned in my last post.  I think I am only going to start three rather than the four to five I posted before.

Here is my one weeks progress on Janet Carsels.  I love Scottish samplers because of the elaborate alphabets and the red and green which is characteristic of a Scottish sampler.  I chose Janet because I love the pink that she added to her sampler.  She is coming along nicely and I had a hard time moving on to Rebecca Robinson.

Here is a partial weeks progress on Rebecca Robinson.  I loved watching Faye's progress on this sampler and knew I would have to start her soon.  I am enjoying working on her.

I will work on Rebecca for a couple more days and then move to Elizabeth Shephard for a week.   I am not sure which sampler will be my focus as I am enjoying working on each of them.  I may just have to keep switching off.

 As usual I am enjoying following everyones progress.  Keep on stitching.

Edited for Clarification - A couple comments were posted that I got a lot of stitching done in one week.  Just for clarification this is actually about two weeks worth of stitching, one week for each sampler.  I was also off work for a week so I got a lot more stitching done than I normally would.  I wish I could get that much stitching done in one week, but not normally.  Thanks for the comments.
