At Long Last, She's Finished!

It has been a very long time coming, but at last Ann Hair (The Scarlet Letter) is finished!







My sampler is a variation of the reproduction since I did my own thing with the grass and deer.

I'll show another photo once I get Ann framed.

simply stunning Ellen - I can't believe how fast you restitched that massive grass. Love the oak (?) tree and the deer. Of course the carnation border is wonderful too. Can't wait to see her framed. on to the next - Mel

Me again. Just wanted to say that I had another look at the grass on Ann and I like your version. I think that it looks do much better than the satin stitch. Must remember when I come to do mine. - Sandra.

So beautiful. Well done. Of course, I love what you did with the grass.

And that carnations band is a classic. One of my favs. So simple, but so beautiful.

Well done.

Congratulations on finishing Anne, what an amazing sampler. The change in stitch to the grass looks so much better, even if it was an extraordinary large amount of extra work.

Congratulations on the beautiful stitching. I think the second version of the grass is much better.
Looking forward to meeting you at your class in New Zealand.
