Jean Scrimgeowr Update
I wrote back in June that Jean was misplaced so I had picked up the Verlande Sampler by A.W. dated 1756. And then I went away at the end of June and I couldn't find Verlande as we were leaving for the airport so I grabbed the kit for Dora Sanger.
And then summer came and this is what I've done -
As of yesterday I finished the bottom left quadrant of the Verlande Sampler.
I'm hoping to finish the upper left this month.
I found Jean a couple of weeks ago. No progress since last you saw her.
BUT the most amazing discovery was someone I haven't seen for years - Amy Bell
During August I worked the upper left quadrant - the house and flowers. It was strange working with 2strands of DMC again. I've worked with silk most of the time. There's not much of a left margin which is why I may have put it away before but someone will know how to frame it.
So the plan is to finish the Verlande Sampler before year end and possibly finish Amy. Jean will have to roll over into next year I'm afraid.
Being a habitual "starter" I also need to stay away from all the others calling to me
Still having hot, muggy days here in Maine but I'm told cooler air is coming. I can't wait!!
