It is a beautiful warm sunny day here, hopefully all of you who have had such a cold winter are enjoying some warmth this weekend as well.
I have been busy this week stitching on my friend Ruth, I took a picture yesterday and then turned the scroll bars so i am further down her length now.
One of the pictures is a little more close up but you can see that I am quite a ways down on the verses. Actually I have completed another line now and am doing the dividing band under the partial row that you see. I think there is only one other row and dividing band before the start of the Irish stitching in the middle of the sampler. So I am further along than I even realized!! It is a beautiful sampler and I am enjoying the colors and the stitching on it. Love the Irish Stitching on the side!!
Here are some pictures of what I have waiting in the wings. The first picture are some samplers that I found in my stash that I didn't even know I had!! Oh, boy am I a bad girl!! The three on the bottom are new purchases. I love that Flamestitch sampler, it is so beautiful and then the other two are what I have fallen in love with from the blog posts!! Two of many, I might add. I also have Betsy Davis and a Scottish sampler that I can't find!! I have allotted today and tomorrow to organize (again) my stitching room so maybe by the Monday I will have found them!!! I purchased Ann Kirby also, she is out of print but I finally found it on e-bay, she is a beautiful sampler as well and my maiden name is Kirby and my middle name is Ann, soooooo Had to have her!!!! Well, some day maybe all these samplers will be on my walls, I certainly hope so!!
