Isabella Update

It seems like I'm making small progress on Isabella Brackin even though I work on it daily. There's so few colors used, and some are so pastel that they are hardly visible. Even so, I have to say that I just love this sampler. The motifs are so feminine and pretty. By the way, I forgot to thank you for the frame suggestions for the Dutch Spot~Motif Sampler. I did find a frame, and I hope to post a picture soon. As always...thanks for stopping by.

Shoot, I think you're making excellent--and rapid--progress! It is very delicate!

Great progress Tanya. I zoomed in for a closer look, just to see if those are strawberries in the border. Have you missed stitching a little bit of the 7th one down on the RH side? Looking forward to seeing your new frame.

Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog! :) I have had such an enjoyable time looking through your blog and drooling over the pictures. I LOVE your decorating. Another Eldreth Pottery fan! I love love love their stuff! Your stitching is beautiful, and I love your WIP. I don't think I've ever seen it before. Perfect choice on the linen!

I can't believe I have just found your blog (through wee bird). It's beautiful!! Your samplers are gorgeous - Your house is beautiful! I have just bookmarked your blog, so I won't miss a post! :)

Two Fine Ewes, by the City Stitcher: try calling Emlis (the # is on their site)--emlis.com. They show a picture of that sampler BUT they showed pictures of the ones I wanted also, and when I called, they said, "we don't have any of those (I asked for about 8), but we have these other ones instead!" (none of which I wanted). Seems things are a tad disorganized there--the owner seems to be in the process of retiring, and her daughter has taken over. Still, it's worth a shot, and the one little thing I ordered was shipped prompty--and they're very nice. The sampler I wanted on ebay went for a bit more than $4. I'd have paid $10!

Your samplers are beautiful! I share your frustration, I have been getting side tracked, and barely touched my Dutch Beauty sampler. I look forward to seeing yours completed.

I am so drawn to this sampler. I have several that I want to get into my rotation...but my UFOs are guilting me out...so I must still that little voice of temptation...I really wanted to get these UFOs to WIPs and behind me. Lovely, lovely work.
