Marion Robertson Update

Hi everyone!

My girls have been back to college for almost a month ... and although there is half the laundry, half the cooking, half the cleaning ... the house is very quiet ... I don't like it ... I've been consoling myself with extra stitching time!

Here is a look at Marion Robertson 1834

And some close ups


Miss Marion is starting to come to life ... I love when that happens ... lots of motivation to keep stitching!

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

If it's too quiet, you'll just have to sing to yourself! ;-)

Marion is just gorgeous. Wow. I love this blog for showcasing all these wonderful charts in detail.

Have a great weekend!

Oh Lanie, Marion is just beautiful! I love all of her colors and that peacock is just precious. She really is coming to life exciting.

Enjoy the quite time, it won't be long and Christmas will be here and children love coming home for the holidays.

I love your sampler. I am always very sad when my childrens back to school.

This has always been one of my favorite Scottish samplers. The mansion house is so solid, no nonsense, and the color remained brilliant so it was very easy to chart from the front.

What a beautiful Scottish sampler!

Nicola said...

Lanie this is so beautiful. I love seeing samplers come to life.

The school term will be up before you know it and the girls with their laundry will be back home :o))

Lanie, such a beautiful sampler. I love when the stitching 'mojo' returns and you'll have another finish by the time the girls are home for the holidays.

This has to be fun to stitch, Lanie, with all the variety in colors and motifs. I like your linen choice - is it a SL fabric?

I absolutely love that the peacock is half as tall as the house! Beautiful job,
