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!
