I do love this blog, I just don't get to post enough!! It's been a very busy summer and I haven't been able to stitch nearly enough. I have been busy doing projects other than Ruth Bacheler, but I have gone back to her now. Here she is!!
She is so pretty, I took this last week and I have worked since then, finished this entire section that is in progress and started under the pink line. So I am on the home stretch now!! But Halloween is calling to me, I love to stitch Halloween projects!!!
I was able to get to see the original sampler this past May!! We stayed near Cambridge and I made arrangements with the Fitzwilliam Museum staff to pull several samplers out of their archives to view. It was spectacular, and Ruth Bacheler is so pretty and really so well preserved, the colors are just as beautiful as they are on the reproduction. It is smaller, must be done on a 50 count or higher, I was so blown away. If you ever have the chance to go to the Fitzwilliam, do it!!!
Thank you for all the beautiful work I have been enjoying!! Even though I haven't posted much I do check the blog frequently to see all the beauties, you all do good work!!!!
