Two Samplers

I have been working on two samplers this week.

Dorothy and Frances

Dorothy Walpole and Frances Pool.

Dorothy Walpole as of 2/8/13

Dorothy is bright and a little wild.

With Thy Needle & Thread Frances Pool

Frances is soft and a little subdued.

I love them both.  :)

    1. Hi Pam,

      I haven't started packing yet. We won't be moving for about a month, so I'll probably start in a couple weeks. :)
