Can you hear the music coming from Lancaster PA?  I have finally finished Emma Miles!!! 

I learned a lot about how I should choose a reproduction sampler, and the most important thing for me is that it be in colors that I love.  Poor Emma was appealing in the middle, but the colors leaned too much toward the gold/beige/tan range for me.  I have to admit though, that the finished piece is much better than I expected.  Also a surprise to me is that the satin stitching in the border is beautiful and one of my favorite things!

My next Scarlet Letter will be And All Was For An Appil.  Lots of color there!!  I think it might be a month or more before I can start it, but who knows?

Isn't it funny what we like when it comes to our samplers. I love Emma and the border is beautiful. AWFAA will sure give you color. I know when I stiched Polly Phillip, I couldn't believe all the bright colors. I usally don't pick bright, but once she was finished Wow..... Your sampler is lovely and we'll all look forward to seeing how you frame her.

Beautiful, Lynn ... congratulations! I love everything about "Emma" but my favorite part of her is the border. All the satin stitching is so pretty.
Enjoy AAWFA It always looks like such fun. Look forward to your progress photos.

Congratulations! Very nice finish. You should be very proud.

I agree...I have to work with colors I like. Don't like too many browns and almost no yellow or orange.

Have fun with the next start.
