Can you hear the pitter patter of me doing the happy dance? Finally...the A&E is done. It's not actually mounted, the frame is just sitting on top. I'll have to save that for another day. I feel like I started this one back in the 90's. I know I've worked on other pieces right along with this one, but it still felt like it would never be finished. The chart pages actually fell out of the magazine from so much handling. I had planned to give the magazine away to the person who wanted it the most, and I still will. Just know that it is not in pristine condition. The first person to email me with an address gets it. Now that it's done, I am very happy with my version. It looks much different than the magazine's reproduction.
Now on to Ann Rayner ~1839~. Isn't she the loveliest? Look at all the red. I'm in sampler heaven with this one.
Here's my start in the corner. The little sheep is over one. I'm using 40ct. Buttercream from Lakeside. You'll be surprised to know that I have almost half of the border done already. Quite a shocker for this border procrastinator. I think this sampler will be more fun than most. It's very colorful, with some quirky color blending, which I won't be doing. Like Sarah Palin, I'm Going Rogue, and will do my own thing.
