I Have Been a Busy Girl!

Here is my progress on Essamplaire's Mary Pierce Sampler. I have done most everything but Eve's head and all the lettering! I have to finish this soon. I'm teaching a class on this sampler in May to my Guild (Gentle Pursuits EGA - Richmond, VA). I am going to make a pinkeep/scissors case from motifs of this sampler. I will be using all the different stitches in it. Once I finish the pinkeep, I will post a picture.

This has been a fun sampler to stitch! I just love-love Adam and Eve Samplers! I have a few in the hopper all kitted up and ready to go! I just need more time to get to them.

I am stitching the Prairie School ABC SAL..I stated that I would do two blocks a month. Well, I was able to do 2 in January, 2 in February, but only 1 in March! I need to get back to that. I am really enjoying stitching over one on 25 count! It's easy on the eyes and it looks great!
I have also posted a picture of my french tie-up basket and some scrims I've recently done! I will be teaching the tie-up basket to my other guild (The Virginia Guild of Needlewomen - Richmond) this month!
Now you know why I didn't get to finish my second PS ABC block this month!
Spring is here and I am THRILLED! What a winter!
Happy Easter!
