A Maryland Inspiration

Hello,

Well, I finally got my camera up and running -- not my old camera -- had to buy a new one!  Now I have to figure out how to take decent pictures with it.  As I promised, here is a picture of my stitched design "A Maryland Inspiration". 

And here is a close up of the cartouche detail. 


Now I have to take it to the framer and select an appropriate frame.  I am not going to mat it -- even though it is stitched on 40 ct. linen, it is already a large sampler (21" square).

The linen I used is 40 ct. Lakeside "Vintage" Light Examplar, with a combination of Belle Soie, HDF and GAST fibers.  Stitches used are cross, over one, satin, Smyrna Cross, Eyelet, Closed Herringbone and Queen Stitch.  Well, I hope you like it and will want to purchase it when I have the charts printed.  Please leave comments so I will know if this is something you like or have suggestions.  Thanks so much.

Theresa

  18. Hi Veronica,

    I'm still trying to get the hang of this blog thing, as you can see by the deleted post above!

    The sampler verse came from an antique sampler but I don't remember where I saw it. I write verses down when they mean something to me and found this one among my collection of verses. It says, "To tell the Saviour all my wants, how pleasing is the task, Nor less to praise him when he grants beyond what I ask."

    It is great hearing from you.

    Theresa
