Thank you!!!

I have missed the end of Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year, but it hasn't ended on this side of the pond yet.  Very little stitching has occurred on my two SL samplers these past few months. I miss them so much! I can't wait until the late evening once the house is quiet enough for stitching. Sadly, once I can give myself permission to start stitching, my eyes are crossing with exhaustion.

Anyway, our family has had a very sad start to our year.  Which reminds me how appreciative I am for having had the opportunity to find this wonderful blog and even be a tiny part of it.  Thank you Nicola, Jo, and Marsha for this fascinating and completely addictive place to lose ourselves in the work of other stitchers!

To say I was overjoyed to learn this wouldn't end, when I finally caught up on my reading, is an understatement! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

So here is my little bit of progress on Mary Ann Michell:

Can't wait to see what the future holds as all of you continue to add tidbits from your lives and your incredible stitching progress!

Sorry to hear that your year has started off sad but I hope your stitching will bring you some joy. The start you made is so very pretty.

Hi Rachel,
The sampler you have started is such a pretty one....I was sorry to read that your year started off with sadness, I hope some stitching on Mary Ann will ease some of that. Sending a hug your way.

Nicola said...

Sending you an extra big hug from your pin pals.

I have this chart and when I stitch it I thought it would be rather nice to replace the wording with "Trewoon House Rules"

If you drop it - Pick it up
If you wear it - Hang it up
It it rings - Answer it
It is opens - Close it.
