Construction Continues

I'm still working on the castle part of Elizabeth Mears (it's going to take awhile - it's huge and solid stitching).

I also got a small start on the "Soar Sampler." It's so hard to photograph black linen though. I'm going to try again tomorrow when the lighting is better.

  1. I so need to order the silks and fabric for this. It's to die for! Gorgeous, and so worth all the effort of that solid stitching!

  2. I agree with Margaret--I need to get going on this also. I love seeing your progress--definitely easier than stitching it myself!

  4. Nicole,

    Your Elizabeth looks wonderful!

    You are very right that that house takes a long time, but isn't it fun to "build" the large house?

    I'm looking forward to seeing more of your progress on this wonderful sampler.

  6. You are doing marvelous!

    The house will be done before you know it. I was truly possessed to finish mine quickly, but then I don't have little ones running around the house anymore.

    I received the Soar Sampler in the mail on Saturday. I am going to work it on black too(or navy).
