Exciting weekend ahead...

I have been a busy gal, trying to finish the model for Miss Mary Roe, and getting ready for some special guests that are arriving tomorrow.  Six pals are coming from all over to attend the 
Sampler Symposium at The Attic this weekend.  It is going to be a crazy fun time.  There will be lots of chatting, shopping, an outing for dinner here, and plenty of stitching.  I have my camera ready to catch the girls in action for future blog posts.
Mary is a bright sampler, and a fun stitch.  I have the verse to finish, charts to finalize, and she'll be ready.  I'm shooting for late January.

I'm sure I'll love it, whenever I can see it. I must need a new laptop! I'm missing a lot of photos and unable to leave comments sporadically, but I'm not taking it personally. Yet. Have fun!

Mary is awesome Tanya ! Wish I was coming to play in the Attic but this workshop always coincides with the rug hooking camp i have attended for the past 13 years so I just can't disappoint my mom - this is something we do together every year. You girls have a blast! Enjoy! Melody

Hello. I love your new sampler Miss Mary Roe. I will certain purchase it. I just purchased The Scarlet House and can't wait to get started on it. I have to get two more colors. Big snow here today, so I'll be getting them soon. Thank you for your gorgeous samplers. I admire your talent. Great samplers.

Jon Lee said...

I just realized I said The Scarlet House Sampler instead of Sarah Elizabeth Brooke Sampler. At any rate, the excitement is definitely there for getting ready to stitch this sampler. Thank you for your beautiful designs.

Krista said...

Miss Mary Roe is looking quite pretty :)

Cristina said...

Your Mary is wonderful. Have a nice time at your retreat.
