Spending Time With Anne Maria

Over the past few months I've been spending lots of time with Anne Maria Clarke (The Essamplaire).  

Here are some recent photos.  The border is mainly done in queen stitches as are the baskets.

The end is in sight as all I have left is to fill in the grass--BUT there's lots and lots of grass.

Absolutely GORGEOUS!! I have this in my stash. Your beautiful stitching has inspired me to move her up to the top of the "to be stitched" ranks!

That grass will go faster than you think. Just get a good audiobook and sit and enjoy some mindless stitching. :D
