Works in progress

First up is AH 1837, the alphabet sampler in the background.Its array of varied alphabets will make it a terrific resource for your stitching stash. Although the original was wool on canvas, we opted for overdyed cottons on linen. Next off the drawing board and into our hoop is this Mexican band sampler. Although unnamed an undated, its vibrant colors and delightful borders begged to be charted and stitched in silks that closely resemble the original fibers. Both should be ready this summer, along with a big yellow deer who's still on the drawing board. We hope you've enjoyed this sneak peek and that you are finding some time this spring to spend with needle and thread.  --Maegan & Vickie
