It must be Friday the 13th,

because you're hearing from me again so soon.  Here is my second release for this month.  Her name is Mary Ann Louisa Boston.  Yes, there has been a lot of Mary Ann's lately, and still another Mary Ann is about to get charted.  It must have been a very popular name back then.  I don't usually buy antique samplers like this, but I couldn't resist the little motifs at the bottom, especially the tiny dogs.  They are about 1/4 an inch stitched on the 40ct. Legacy linen from Picture This Plus that I used.  It is charted for Needlepoint Silks and a conversion to DMC is provided.  There is a fair amount of over one on it, sorry.  Please don't hate me!  It's Mary Ann Louisa's fault.

The beautiful frame is from Valley House Primitives.  Thank you, Janet!
My friend, Sandy has already stitched Button Eyed Cat, and finished it in such a clever way.  I love the blanket stitch around the "31".  Thanks for the great idea, and for allowing me to share it.  I think you just gave me an idea for Christmas!
Have a great weekend everyone!

Sooo glad I was able to bring your new Mary Ann home with me yesterday! I just love the colors (and the teensy dogs). Great seeing you yesterday, too. I have missed you gals.
