One of the things I’ve been working on this year is Gay Ann Rogers’ Xena, Sampler Maker. She’s my project in the year-long
“Stitch Gay Ann Stash” SAL going on in Gay Ann’s classroom with The Shining Needle Society.
So far, I have completed Xena’s face, the main outline, her vest and her sleeves and gloves, along with the frames for her samplers. The next “lesson” is the center panel of her skirt. I’d really like to finish that part this week…we’ll see.
I’m also almost finished with my Mary Wigham Reproduction Sampler from Needleprint. I’m just about ready to begin adding the initials…I’m using my own family initials for this, not Mary Wigham’s family. There is a small hitch to this is in that I cannot complete the project until May…we are expecting another granddaughter then, and I obviously don’t know what her name will be.
More posts soon…perhaps even a photo of Mary Wigham.
