  1. Congrats on your beautiful finish.
    All of your stitched Samplers are so pretty.
    I have been to Country Sampler a few times.
    Jeanne is a great interior decorator, and her displays are beautiful.
    You will not want to leave!
    Have a great week!

    1. Thanks Marilyn! You are so lucky to have visited Country Sampler! I hope to make a trip there one day. :)

  2. Your finish is stunning. Well done! Look forward to seeing your start Ann Wright. Enjoy your Sunday!

  3. I already have Sarah Redfern so don't put my name in for the chart. But I also love Tanya's designs; she is one of my very favorite. I can't wait to get her new chart called A Perfect World!! So love it. I saw the three books by Blackbird and they look wonderful. My list grows long at my LNS!! LOL I loved seeing some of your samplers; they are gorgeous. Did you watch Kitten Stitcher's videos on framing? I bet you could do some yourself if you wanted to. Good luck with the new LNS coming to your area. That will be wonderful. Happy stitching and enjoy market party. :)

  4. Hello Nicole, I am watching you from NZ and really enjoying your broadcasts. Wow, I loved looking at ALL your stitching across the 3 videos of 20years of stitching. It was amazing to think what you have accomplished with a family and working outside the home. Something I have done with many of the small stitcheries is make a needlework book with silk pages and Ive taken the smalls out of their frames, to free up wall space. Then I have put them into the book. The cover is PS, E is for embroidery. Just an idea? Anyways, as you all say love seeing your work. Wonderful! Cheery from Suzanne Madsen in NZ.

  5. Love your finish! My favorite Scarlet House sampler is Mary Betchell 1810. Look forward to seeing your Merrily Merrily finish.
