Seeing Red..... My Token of Love~

 
Greetings friends and stitching Pals~ Thank goodness it is finally Friday and it's a long weekend! I wanted to spotlight the Quaker influenced sampler I'm working on right now... I started it in November, and it has now become my end-of my day sampler.... I especially love it because it's a red monochrome~ AND, the red I'm using is my all time favorite, Best Used Brick by Victorian Motto Sampler Thread....

My Token of Love

Rosewood Manor

40 count Vintage Pecan Butter

Victorian Motto Sampler Threads~ Best Used Brick

I often stitch the medallions along the border first.... 

 

And this one is my favorite.... 

This is a really sweet stitch... on 40 count it only measures 8 1/2 by 9 inches~ 

I will be beginning a larger Quaker Sampler once I complete this WIP.... I'm still deciding which of the Sarah's it will be..... Sarah Tatum by Scarlet Letter or Sarah Moon by Needprint.... Both are colorful, large and are reproduction Samplers which depict the works by young school girls..... I always marvel at the projects these young hands would create given their ages..... 

I'll have more progress to post soon (hopefully)~~ As I work on the orders in my craft room this weekend, I will end my day with a few stitches in My Token of Love~ 

Stay safe, warm and happily creating! 

Faye

"Vintage pecan butter" ... "best used brick" - sounds wonderful even before I look at your progress pic, lol. Beautiful sampler and your fabric and color choices highlight the loveliness.

I have so many quaker girls Faye, all waiting to be stitched. Some started like the Beatrix Potter and Token of Love by Long Dog. I love yours, such a great color combination. Enjoy Mel

I did a large redwork piece about 8 years ago. Turns out my love of red did not extend to this redwork piece. However, I've grown in my journey, and now I know to use over dyed floss for more monochrome projects as you did here. Your project looks great, and I love it.

Very nice! Is it hard to stitch on 40 count? I have seen a couple of projects that I've thought about stitching. I only stitched one project on 32 count and thaat was difficult However, that was before I got my magnifying lamp.
