Quaker Samplings II is DONE!!

Woohoo! I finished "Quaker Samlings II" by With my Needle last night just as the basketball game was ending. I love this piece and may have to keep it. I used "Midnight" Waterlilies and there is not a lot of variation in the color, but I like it. And I love working on 40 count linen. This is Maple Sugar by Lakeside Linens. Good stuff.

Now I can start "Grace Mason" by Of Female Worth. I substituted Weeks Dye Works and Sampler Threads for the Gumnut Stars overdyed silk and I'm anxious to see who it turns out. I got over that fear of changing anything that the original design calls for a long time ago. I choose a piece because I like the way it looks. So if I don't like the fabric or the fiber colors when I pull them out, or if they don't look like the photo, I change them. It's my sampler, I can do what I want with it. So there.

I'll try to do better on showing pictures as my projects are in work. I just don't always have the camera around when I think of it.
