Am still stitching on the Quaker Sampler. Three of the inner motifs and the outline of some of the half medallions have been stitched since you last saw M. Quertier.
Here is what she looked like before the addition of the three inner motifs and the outline of the half medallions in the outer border. Gosh, does lighting ever factor into photography.
I think the inner medallions are what attracted me to this sampler--they are all so different.
M. stitched the date into her sample three different times. Wonder if M. and her school mates were as apprehensive about entering a new century as we were when we changed from 1999 to 2000?
One more inner motif and two outer motifs and fill in on six other motifs and M. will be off to the framers. Do I see
the light at the end of the tunnel a finish before years end?
