Miss Hutton Progress

Gentle Friends thanks again for stopping by, as I said yesterday I was going to post a progress snap of Mary Hutton....  as of last night here is where she stands.... sorry about how wonky the snap is.....

 Mary Ann Hutton 1801 "A Christmas Sampler"

I didn't make a note of the linen, but I am thinking it is something 36ct, and I am using my conversion of Belle Soie silks.  I hadn't touched this piece in a good long while, so I am really enjoying getting back to her.  I am still not sure what I will put in place of MA's name, something will come to mind.

I also joined in on Nicola's Scarlet Letter SAL Blog II -There are Two Blogs now Blog I and Blog II.  There is some beautiful stitching going on over there, go check it out!!!

It is quite lovely and I think your selection of Belle Soie silks is just perfect for the piece.

Vicki said...

This is a gorgeous piece, Edgar. Can't wait to see it completed.

Carolyn said...

ABSOLUTELY gorgeous! Edgar, you are quite the enabler when it comes to samplers. They are just about all I ever stitch anymore except Christmas ornaments and the occasional small. This one is so, so pretty. You are moving right along with her. :)

Krista said...

Great progress Edgar! Glad to see you joined in the SAL.

Deb said...

Miss Hutton looks wonderful. I really like the fabric you chose for it. And glad to see that you're on board for the SL SAL. It's fun because you get so motivated when you see what other people are working on.

Hi Edgar, I've just found your blog and I've enjoyed reading and looking through all your postings. You do beautiful work. Lovely! I need to share your blog with the male stitcher in my life. Thanks for the list of blogs that you read, I've added quite of few to my list. I look forward to your future postings. You have cute dogs too :-)

I love this one and so need to stitch it sometime! It's looking wonderful! Yay for joining in on Nicola's SL Year!

Peggy Lee said...

This sampler is so beautiful! You have really made good progress.

Kate said...

This is looking wonderful. I'm sure you will be finished in no time.

Julie said...

Very pretty.

Maggee said...

Miss Hutton is nearly finished! You are doing great! I tend to gravitate to samplers without over one stitching and without people. And no specialty stitches. Looks like this one could go on my list! I have seen a few others out there... Thanks for sharing! Hugs!

Nicola said...

I am so pleased you joined Edgar. Your sampler is a beauty.

Roberta said...

This is a lovely piece and you should be done soon.

I love this sampler. The lettering style is different from the usual reproductions. Very nice.

Barb said...

Edgar, that is so pretty. I had looked at it but was not really inspired until I saw yours!

Lee said...

Great work, Edgar! Those silks make it look so rich. And I love the style of the letters.

Rita said...

What a beautiful sampler!

Jodi S said...

I really like this sampler. Love the verse.

Dot said...

I've recently discovered your blog and so glad I did. Your stitching is superb and all your other entries so interesting. Thank you so much for sharing. I'm enjoying it so much.

Natasha said...

Whata beautiful piece. I espcialy like the tree. Keep up the great work!

Catherine said...

Beautiful!

Looks fantastic, Edgar! And I've also been following Nicola's Scarlet Letter SAL blog and have ordered my first reproduction sampler kit from The Scarlet Needle (very excited for its arrival!) I decided upon Elizabeth Simon as my first reproduction sampler, but boy are there many to choose from on that site! I admit I started a rather long wish list here for myself. If you have any other sites which you enjoy for reproduction sampler kits and/or charts, I'd love to hear your suggestions or advice for someone such as myself who is just exploring these designs for the first time. I so far only know of Scarlet Letter and The Essamplaire, so if you have others you're happy with, I'd be so appreciative to learn about them. Thanks Edgar.
