Elizabeth Harborne - Day 23

Got a chance to work on the sampler again for about thirty minutes this evening.  I decided to establish the start of the remaining bands for the rest of the sampler just to figure out the color distribution.  The other thing is to also figure out if I want the lettering to be upside down as charted.  When I started the sampler my plan was to stitch it just the way it was charted but now I am not so sure... at the moment I am leaning towards just stitching the letters so that they do not appear upside down. I also think I am going to add a band to stitch my name and date etc. so I have added the white and light green lines before the last band in Holbein stitch.  These are just ideas at the moment - probably still in the 'design mode' after finishing the silk project.
Anyway, here is a picture as of tonight

Looks like you are getting close to the finish. What ever you decide to do, it is sure going to be a beautiful sampler.

I like your ideas for personalising your sampler. You have down so much, you must be very pleased how it is looking.

Very interesting work. I'm not familiar with this piece...I'll have to look into why the lettering is upside down! Looks like you have the piece very well organized. Good luck with your decision and your finish.
