With My Needle Progress

Wow, thank you everyone for your encouragement on my rotation and my wip basket! I'm so glad you all like the idea! :) Well, I did work on "With My Needle" as scheduled yesterday. I got a lot of the girl's dress stitched. I'm happy with the progress I made.

With My Needle progress
40 ct. Light Examplar by Lakeside Linens with DMC Threads (1 over 2).

My six year old, Jake, and I went to The Charleston Museum today. I only live about 15 miles from Charleston, but most of the time it seems a world away. I don't get out enough! Anyway, I decided to get out today and there was a bonus to the trip! The museum store sells reproduction sampler patterns! :) This is what I got...

Pattern and book from The Charleston Museum

Sarah Ann Wilcox chart and a book about Charleston Samplers. The original of the sampler pattern I got is on the cover of the book. When I got home I also had some mail waiting for me. I fell in love with these two samplers after seeing them in Tanya's (The Scarlett House) album.

Of Female Worth "ES Spot Sampler" and "Harriet Eliza Saxton Sampler"

Well, today is "HoHRH" day. I already started stitching it a little - the 36 seems so big after working on 40 ct. all week! :) Well, not much else - Write soon!

  1. Hi Nicole,

    Your stitching is all looking lovely, little bits revealed each day on the rotations. I love what you bought at the Museum. Do you know if they can be purchased online?

    I have been Tanya's site too and really liked the the samplers she has stitched (and is stitching). I have my eye on the ES Spot Motif. *sigh* I figure if I can't at least stitch as much/as fast, at least I can have favourites to dream about!

  2. Only you could turn a trip to the Museum into a stash purchase. :) Looks like your sampler wall will be filled with plenty of finishes in the future.

    WMN is looking terrific. I love this design.

  14. To fundamentally portray the vibes of a sharp sewing machine needle, the focuses are more thin through the pole. This is a phenomenal decision when you are sewing with engineered softened cowhide. https://leather-toolkits.com/reviews/best-leather-camera-bags/
