Scarlet Letter

Elizabeth Sheffield, Newport, Rhode Island, dated 1784
Reproduction Sampler by the Scarlet Letter
I made this sampler in the Years 2011-2012 and thought you would enjoy seeing it.  The colors are magnificent and that is what kept me going!  It was a lot of work, with a majority of the stitches over one thread.  I began in the upper right hand corner stitching the "blue bird".  I felt that if I could stitch him I would be able to do the rest.  I worked on this with a friend of mine, Carole, who also completed her own piece.  I have been thinking of what my next one will be!
