Newest Start Frances Marshall

Well, I decided I couldn't wait for my Eleanor Parr to arrive, so I started on Frances Marshall.  She is really turning out to be a nice stitching piece.  The border is all different colors and well as different designs.  I like that I am not repeating the pattern over and over.  This is what I have so far. 


I am looking forward to seeing more posts from everyone.  For those of you in the North East, United States, I am sure not much stitching is getting done, with all the Fall leaves.  It sure was lovely seeing the colors, when I was with Mom in Ohio.

Hi Bethany,

Frances Marshall is a beautiful sampler. You have a good start. I like all the colors and I like the idea that the border is not so repetitive. It makes for a more interesting stitching experience. I hope you had a nice flight home. I, like you, decided to start another sampler while awaiting arrival of Eleanor Parr and after looking at all the samplers that you and your Mom have stitched, I chose Amy Ball that I had in my stash. I will post it when I get the top border finished. We are still enjoying beautiful weather here in NE Ohio, so I haven't been getting a lot of stitching done, but I have been spending a lot of time looking at all the beautiful samplers on the blog and on Facebook! My wish list just keeps getting longer (LOL)! It was nice talking to you when you were here. Did you look at your Mom's Betsy Davis sampler when you got home and were those satin stitches surrounding the queen stitched flowers?? I"m looking forward to seeing your progress on Frances Marshall and I have added her to my wish list.

Frances Marshall was a sampler I knew was beyond my skill. I'm so glad you started it because now I will get to see it up close.

It is a beautiful sampler.

I told you you were a better stitcher than I and now you've proven it to me and soon all of Our Scarlet Letter Blog will know. Mom

Oh Oh, it has started to rain in NE Ohio, What else is new?? Anyhow, I'm singing in the rain and stitching on Amy Ball and I/m happy again!.

I live all those different coloured flowers in the border. They make it so much more interesting to stitch!

Great start Bethany. I have always loved this sampler and it will be so much fun to watch her come to life.

Looking nice Bethany - love the birds in the lower portion of this sampler. Rainy and cold in Eastern PA, so I'm thinking more stitching may get done (hoping).

This is just so pretty.
Looking forward to seeing her grow.

I had to go back and check Frances Marshall . There are so many beautiful samplers that it's hard to remember which is which! The flowers are such a pretty color . This is going to be very lovely! What fabric are you using?
Just curious is your mother working on a sampler?

For those of you interested, I am using R&R Daily Grind 40ct. I think I might have dyed it at some time, by the looks of the salvage, but not sure.

Also, Mom is working on a GiGi R Sampler. Sampler from Saxony ATS 1871.
