Almost There

Hi All,

Here is another update on Janet Carsels.  I don't have much left before she is finished.  I am not sure I am ready for her to be finished as I have very much enjoyed stitching on this one.

Bottom Section

Tree Detail

Corner Flower Detail
I tried to attach some detailed photos.  I love the corner flower motif.  The white tree is nice now but it was not a lot of fun to do.  The black centers caused me some problems as they are only one stitch so they are hard to do and not have traveling threads.  I ended up traveling with the thread and I did not think you could see it.  I see it is visible on the picture though.   I am going to have to fix that.    

Keep on stitching.

Lovely, Dawn. I think your white trees look perfect. Look forward to your "and she's finished" post :)

Your sampler is looking beautiful Dawn! I agree with Lanie, your white trees do look perfect.

Such a pretty sampler! This blog has been so great as we get a good look at so many Scarlet Letter samplers!

Happy Stitching!

Dawn - have you tried a pin stitch to start and finish, I came across it recently and it is very handy particularly so for the one isolated stitch.

I can understand the wrench when a love affair with a project comes to an end.

Janet is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.

Beautiful work! Thanks for sharing. This looks like a tempting project - love all the motifs.

Love the angled bouquet of flowers in the bottom left corner! This is one I hadn't noticed before, but now I think she's gorgeous.
