I thought I'd  share a lovely finish that Linda P. had at our last meeting way back in April. I took a couple of pictures, this was the best of them, and asked her to send me some information on it and I'd post it for her. Well, she sent it and I apparently lost the email so I asked her to send it again, which she did and I'm finally getting around to posting it so everyone can see. I love how this one looks and believe me my picture doesn't do it justice. Linda always does a fantastic job and I hope you enjoy and are inspired!


Title:  "Marie-Lucie 1920" Sampler
Book:  Petits rouges di ici et d'ailleurs
Author:  Muriel Brunet and Francoise Ritz
Linen: Gander 38ct nacre
Fiber:  ThreadworX 1089
The sampler was very enjoyable and I loved watching the variegated reds change shades.  Naturally I breezed through the first portion, but once the alphabet became bigger and more elaborate the pace slowed down a bit.  Although the border may look tedious, there was a nice rhythm to it.  I actually have one last "tiny" motif to completed on the sampler....and it will be done on my daughter's birthday next month (April), then dated.

Marie-Lucie is really striking Linda. Lovely color choice - your making me want to do a red sampler.

Well, that's just gorgeous. Well done, Linda! I've been thinking of doing a red sampler for years, but can never decide which is my favorite over-dyed red.
