The Tale of Two Samplers

Hi Friends!
 Just wanted to do a quick post to update you on some of the designs that I've been stitching since my last post. Mercy Mercy, a new design from La-D-Da  released at this year's Market, just spoke to me.

Mercy Mercy
30-count R&R Reproductions  Foglifter linen
Weeks Dye Works fibers

I love everything about it. The color of the fibers on the fabric, the wording, and those fantastic birds!!! I especially like the peacock!!!

Like so many of you, I've really been attracted to samplers with a "pop" of red.  Mary Edmondson 1812 really knocked it out of the ball park for me. It was such a joy to stitch, and like Mercy, Mercy, the colors really stood out.

There's an Easter surprise and another small framed piece to come. Until then, happy stitching!!!!
