Mary Ann, Mary Ann, Liz and Isabella

Happy Sunday, all! I've spent quite a bit of time with my needle this week. Here's a little progress on Mary Ann Hoover (The Essamplaire):
Mary Ann MacDonald (the Scarlet Letter, which I'm stitching for Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year):
Elizabeth Easdon (The Essamplaire):
Isabella Fox 1827 (GigiR). I'm stitching Isabella using the charted Gentle Arts threads on 40 count vintage buttercream by Lakeside Linens. It's so nice to have time to stitch now that the holidays are over!

From time to time, I'm asked how the various pets in our house get along. Kitten-Kitten and the bunnies enjoy a supervised playtime here. Pink approaches Kitten-Kitten.
Who reaches out a gentle paw to tap Pink. Kitten-Kitten: "Pink, you're it!"
"Got to run!"
Happy week ahead!

How sweet is that supervised playtime! The colors are so sensational in all of the samplers. Mary Ann appears to have lots of over one and there is something of each that stands out. But I'm still smitten with Hoover.
