Finally, a new Post!

I have been so enjoying all the beautiful samplers and all the beautiful work of the very talented stitchers on these two blogs.  I have had a very busy, emotionally trying summer so I have been absent for way too long.  It is time for me to get back in my groove and show you what little bit of work I have done.    (I can also blame summer because I do tend to blame summer weather on anything that frustrates me!!)

When I say a little bit I really do mean it, at least for our Scarlet Letter challenge.  After finishing Dorothy Walpole I started the Manifesto as well as Ruth Bachelor.  I have a little done on both, but I have spent quite a bit of time working on some other projects.  So hopefully I will get these two samplers back in my "rotation" and we will see way more progress this fall.  
Here is Ruth Bachelor, it scared me a little a first but I really have enjoyed this little bit of stitching that I have managed to do so far.  

Below is Manifesto, I am doing this on 35 count natural linen and using tent stitch over 1.  I love it but I am afraid it is going to be a very long term love affair!!  

Thanks again for all the beautiful sampler posts, I will be back soon with some more progress.

My guess is Manifesto is going to take some time. But we all finish one stitch at a time. Good luck and looking forward to more posts

Beautiful stitching Sonja! I love the colors of Ruth Bacheler ... she is such a happy sampler! And I give a big bushel of kudos to all who are stitching The Manifesto ... what an amazing heirloom you will have!

Both are beautiful. I am in awe of you stitching Manifesto over 1.
