My Mary's Sampler version 2 turned out very nicely. I am so pleased with this little free design that Paulette Stewart from Plum Street Samplers gave us last fall. A friend of mine did hers with the darker linen that was another color palette suggested and it is even prettier than this as she selected a frame that made the piece really stand out.
Late last year I also finished the Mystery Sampler From La-D-Da, "Margaret Cottam". I think this pattern was made available in 2011 as a 3-part mystery sampler using Weeks Dye Works linen and floss.
As my winter project, I pulled out a sampler that I bought a The Scarlet Letter about 15 years ago "The Letterndoek - A Sampler by IT Dated 1697". The design is stitched on 35 count linen and finishes 21 3/4" x 9 3/4". Here is a little snippet to share. I just love the colors in this sampler.
As a small project I started this piece that will be a sewing case when my friend Janie had her hip surgery. The blue and brown play so well together. I think I have just the right fabric to go along with it.
In closing I thought I would share this picture of Molly's toys all grouped together. She always goes to the door with a toy in her mouth and I make her drop them before she goes out so I don't have to go fetch them in the cold and the snow. She has quite a pile going. :)
I hope not to stay away quite so long. Until next time.
