A little progress to show~

Greetings and good morning friends~ I have had busy hands these past few days.... Needless to say, my customers orders come first, however I devote the last hour of my day to personal stitching & finishing~ As I showed you last week, my current project is a red Quaker influenced piece by Rosewood Manor called My Token of Love... The Vintage Butter Pecan Lakeside 40 count linen with the "Best Used Brick" Victorian Mottoe Sampler thread are marrying together well....   

I've completed all the perimeter motifs... 

Each motif has its own unique shape..... I love the contrasts of them all~

As an educator, I am constantly reading and researching how the Quaker Schools incorporated stitching into the students daily activities... I'll be sharing tidbits with you along the way once I begin my next sampler..... Its a toss up between reproduction samplers,  the Sarah Tatum Sampler and the Sarah Moon Sampler..... stay tuned~ 

Design size on 40 count is 8 1/2 by 9 inches... so, if your a 32 count stitcher, your design size would be about 10 3/4 by 11 1/4 inches.... 

 

Okay.... That's it for now.... I'm headed into my craft room to create treasures for fellow Stitcher's and tonight I plan on putting more tiny "x's" in this sweet sampler......

 

Enjoy your day!

This is beautiful, Faye! I especially love your choice of red and must write myself a note so I'll remember to order some of that "Best Used Brick" from Nancy/Victorian Motto Shoppe! Always love seeing your finishing work and love that you've shared this wip by Rosewood Manor! Look forward to your future progress pics! Kevin

Your Quaker piece is coming along beautifully! Love how petite it is on the 40-count.

And will be looking forward to reading what you have to share about methods in the Quaker Schools.

Gorgoeous, Faye! And you are really productive with that one hour at the end of the day! :-) Could I ask where you purchase your stitching fabric? I'm having the hardest time finding anything local. I have several finished projects just about ready to send to you and will contact you in the next week.
