Here she is in all her loveliness - Sarah Day 1827 - stitched from the Sampler & Antique Needlework Magazine Summer 2013.
I did have plans to turn this into a bag as shown in the magazine, but realized as I was about to do that, that I have nowhere to put her! Unfortunately where I live is very humid and dirty which causes me stress on a daily basis trying to keep my house in a comfortable living condition - so the sampler would have to be stored away somewhere protected away from bugs, dampness and dirt but then unfortunately I would never get to see her - so my decision is she shall be framed and hung on my wall where I can keep a close eye on her.
I want to thank everybody on your lovely comments yesterday about my progress on my Bothy Threads tea shop - I have been fortunate lately to have some serious stitching time on my hands due to the fact my youngest has joined the rest of his siblings in daycare and my husband has a new business project keeping him busy, so he is not bugging me all the time ... and I mean that in the nicest possible way, honey if you ever read this.
I will be showing my progress on Sunny Morning by Lanarte tomorrow so don't forget to check back in.
Smiles and hugs,
