Here she is with all her feathered friends:
|The Birdkeeper - The Goode Huswife|
Stitched on 35 ct tea-dyed linen with DMC
Next, I started the S. Wood sampler from The Scarlet Letter.
|S.Wood sampler - The Scarlet Letter|
This is a miniature sampler that dates from about 1820.
I am stitching it on 32 count tea-dyed linen, using Au ver a soie. Even though it is a miniature, this is a tough one because it is all stitched one-over-one. Very tough on the eyes!
I finished up the upper border. The gold border is made up of three rows, a light gold row, a dark gold row, and another light gold. The visibility here is not great! I am going to start the verse tonight, and skip back and forth to the border, doing it a little at a time. It is easier on my eyes that way.
This is what I have so far:
We are in the middle of yet another raging blizzard here tonight.
Hope you are all safe and warm tonight wherever you are!
