Cue the Hallelujah Chorus!
Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
Richmond Sampler is finished!
Words cannot express how delighted I am with the finished product. She is simply gorgeous. I visited my grandmother today and was able to get some really nice photos in her dining room. Enjoy a pictorial visit with Anne Maria Clarke and her remarkable sampler...
I hope you enjoyed the pictures...it is because of your encouragement, dear followers, that I was able to stick with this and finish! THANK YOU! Now, for those of you who are wondering what in the world those mossy green stitches were - well, they were my infant attempts at queen stitches as taught to me by Margriet Hogue of The Essamplaire when I took the Richmond Sampler class at the Gathering of Embroiderers. I had never stitched a queen stitch before attempting this sampler. Now I can honestly say I feel like a queen stitch expert! I decided to leave in those beginning stitches as they were part of my journey with Anne Maria Clarke.
Now, what to do with my time??? I am sure to find something and I promise to post soon!
