Today's project is very special. It's a sampler this is being designed as it's being stitched. I came up with the idea several years ago and my round robin group at the time has done the stitching so far. It's a Jane Austen sampler for my daughter, Katie. Each stitcher added a line from one of the Austen books and then several bands of specialty stitches. There are 9 floss colors and 2 bead colors. Each stitcher has added stitches that she enjoyed working. It's quite the collection so far! I stitched the first section, using a starting letter designed by Katie. It has more of an embroidery feel to it but I think it fits the sampler perfectly. So, here it is!
Jane Austen Sampler
Laura, Betsy, Lisa, Judie
at least 2 more sections to come
28 ct orphan linen from Picture This Plus
I can hardly wait for the last sections to be added and to get it framed and delivered to Katie. What a lovely surprise it will be!!
