In the evening I did work on the old sampler copy. As I have said in comments back to some of you, Elizabeth was a 10 year old girl. No wonder we have very different color tastes. I am sticking to the design to the letter. At least as much as we were able to copy her design, errors and all. I have done lots of frogging. The Heirloom Gold I was using for the border was very green. I did not like it and found a much golder version. So I frogged the entire top border and some of the side borders. I know that makes me very anal!!!! Plus some of the letters I had already stitched had to be changed. I am much happier with it now. I did have to go to the two shops in Northern Alabama to get a dye lot that matched the one I had been using. I have decided that designing charts is a lot more work than it looks like!!!!! Plus, when using the dyed floss, get enough to finish the job!!! DYE LOTS CAN BE VERY DIFFERENT!!!!!
So sorry for the wrinkles. I iron after it is all finished. That was a lot of border to frog!!
All of the gold letters you see were frogged and stitched in the pretty Heirloom Gold. I will be very careful when buying that color. I love it but not when it is so green.
That's about it for my stitching. Thanks for joining me. I hope you are all having the beautiful spring that has come to us in the Pacific NW!
