Some stitching progress to show

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

IMG_3092“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.

Be well…

Good for you with Mary Wigham! I'm plugging away and really enjoying it, especially the threads.

Where did you find Xena?
Looks like she is going to be a very interesting and different sampler when she is done.

Xena is one of Gay Ann Rogers' designs and I purchased her in Gay Ann's last e sale on her site last fall.
