I love the colors, I saw in on a blog and fell in love with it and had to have it!! Like so many samplers!! Way too many samplers as a matter of fact. But it did turn out to be as beautiful as I thought. I don't know if I have done one where the designer left out parts, the parts I guess that had frayed from the original. I didn't match exactly what she did, some I went ahead and finished and others I didn't. But it all looks good now!!
This one is Ruth Bacheler, I think I am about half maybe a little more than half finished. It is on a scroll frame so you can't see the top of it. I finished this Irish Stitch part in the middle last night. It is a pain in my booty!! I find it hard to make sure I am doing it exactly right, but it did turn out like the picture so I guess I am close.
We are going to Cambridge on our vacation and I have made arrangements to see this sampler in the Fitzwilliam Museum!! I am excited to see the finished, original product!!
