Sorry to be away so long......

.....but I have been a very busy girl! I have finished the Mary Pierce 1770 Sampler by The Essamplaire...I need to get her to the framers A.s.a.p.

I presented a class to my guild, Gentle Pursuits EGA in Richmond, VA last week on the Mary Pierce Sampler. I did an overview of Virginia Samplers. I created a scissor/pinkeep for the class. It contained all the stitches that were in the Mary Pierce Sampler.
I can never get these pictures to come out in the right place! Please forgive the misplacement. If you have any suggestions on how this works, let me know!
I will be finishing up Catherine Therons Quaker scissors pocket soon! I'm just about done with the stitching. I took a class from Catherine on May 8th at a luncheon for my other guild, the Virginia Guild of Needlewomen. I'll post a picture when I'm finished-finished!
Then it's back to the Richmond Sampler for me! I have looking forward to this for a while. I took a class from Margriet Hogue of The Essamplaire at Jeannine's in February! I believe Margriets is having an online class for this sampler in November! Hopefully, I can finish it by then! Please watch me progress here!

Both look lovely Holly. You have been busy. I the Quaker Sewing Case class by Catherine Theron but haven't work on it since - I applaud you stitching on it so diligently.
