Now there are two!

"Xena" is stitching at a speedy pace. She has finished her second sampler for you all to see.
Below is a closer view of the sampler. I have changed some of Gay Ann's color suggestions and stitched the flowers in two shades of a salmony-gold to add some variety to all the greens. I also stitched the "E F" in a lighter shade of green in the second alphabet -- "E F" are my initials and I like the way they come together in the alphabet making it easy for me to "sign" my work without it being obvious.

I need to do some frogging, recounting and restitching on the frame for the third sampler --Hey, I was an English Major, and counting is NOT one of my strongest points!

Try to stay cool -- staying in my stitching "studio" is helping me get through all this heat and humidity. Till next time...

Edy,
Life's been taking me away from blog reading for a while, so I hadn't been keeping track of your progress on this piece. Xena is looking lovely, as are her samplers. I recall your worry about stitching her hair, but it really came out wonderfully!

P.S. You probably already know, but Mom is home and looks fantastic. She is almost completely back to before-illness energy levels.
