Hi, all. Just a quick one tonight as I'm embroiled in some knotty homework. Now that the online needlework show has revealed this sampler, I can show you what I'm working on: Mary Western 1820 by Samplers Revisited. I was lucky enough to wander in to In Stitches when Patty Yergey, the designer, stopped by with the model and some charts. I can tell you that the real-life sampler is so much prettier than even this photograph of the project.
I stitching it on the recommended Lakeside in Maritime White, although I'm using 40 count, rather than the 36 count suggested, worked with NPI (although it's also charted for DMC). It's a large sampler! I've counted 68 of the little pink fan-flowers in the border (sweet peas?); so far I've stitched 8 of them.
Off we head to last-minute chores and then to bed. Happy week ahead, says Peaches.
