See that cow?

The short-legged cow?
It's all his fault
that I now own this sampler...
Something more
to add
to my "bucket-list"
of
things to do...
Yes,
I know,
most people
add
travel the world
to their lists
and
I add
stitching!

Someday,
I hope to reproduce
Isbell B. Mason
so
that others
may enjoy her too.
The sampler was stitched
by 7 year old Isbell
(love her name, by the way).
She worked the piece
at the Price School
and
Isbell stitched
her last stitch
on June 3,1831.

Other sampler news...
The antique reproduction
"Mansion House at Fox Hollow"
is on it's way from model stitcher, Susanna.
It is wonderful...
worked in faded blues,
browns,
&
peachy-salmon flosses.
Think big house,
flowers,
rooster,
dog,
duck,
and that cute fox in the corner,
remember him?

I'm to the last and final portion
of the
Ann Dickinson sampler,
a row of satin stitches
that runs
the width
of the sampler...
which by the way
is taking me longer then I expected.
{sigh}

Release dates for the
Ann Dickinson
and
Mansion House at Fox Hollow
samplers
coming soon!


Have a good weekend everyone,
Brenda
