Another 2013 Finish!


Scarlet Letter
Mary Ann Hutton
36 ct cream linen
Mix of called for DMC and Soie d'Alger threads
 
I have been stitching like crazy on this sampler.  She has been so much fun and hard to put down!  Technically there is a plain 3 color border outside the beautiful flower border.  But, in the picture on the pattern, the border is nearly invisible.   So I am happy with it "as-is"  Is that cheating?
 
I got a package in the mail on Saturday-


It was from Clare in New Zealand.  She is Craftylady in Kiwiland.  She was so kind to help me out with a magazine pattern I have been looking for with no luck.  And look what else--a surprise!

Clare made me a project roll and a small project bag.  Miss Trenner's Needlework Academy pieces fit right into this roll and the threads & misc will fit perfectly in the bag!  And the workmanship is just beautiful!  Thanks so much, Clare!
