WIP 13: Catharine Metcalf--Two-Fisted Stitcher

Happy Tuesday! I've been tearing along on my various WIPs, and I wanted to show you one today that I haven't stitched on for a while (that will be remedied, since I will give it a little attention after this post). It's Catharine Metcalf 1836, by The Scarlet Letter. I'm stitching it on 40 count Lakeside in Lentil or Navy Bean from the looks of it (I'm too lazy to check back on the original post), using the called-for AVAS fibers.


Of course, since there's a deadline on Sarah Hatton McPhail, all I want to do is stitch other things.


Here's Sarah Hatton--I got tired of the top left corner, so now I'm working on the bottom right.


And I stitched for a while yesterday on Dorothy Walpole, also a Scarlet Letter piece. I made it to the right-hand side.


Here's little Elvis, as I was readying him for the journey to Bunny Camp. He wasn't happy, as you can probably tell (none of them much like to be picked up and hauled around).

Elvis: "No shoes, no shirt, but I still get service! Waaaaa!!!!"

Tomorrow's stitch night at In Stitches! See you again soon!

I would love to have Catharine hanging on my wall and I'm still considering a steel blue linen which may be a big mistake. Sarah really has the stitches, doesn't she? What an amazing sampler which I know you will finish soon.
