Heritage Sampler progress


Not a ton of really visible progress on this one since my last post, but trust me it was a fair number of hours/time consuming. I did the grape viney border next to the over one letters on the right and then I did the eyelet border under the top band and the orange line under that. I think next time it will be unavoidable and I'll have to do some more over one lettering! There is a lot in this piece. I'm happy with how it is coming out though. :)

I think the time spent on Chatelaines can be very deceiving. You stitch for hours and seem to get nowhere. Then all of a sudden, progress appears when you've spent less time. Go figure. At any rate, it IS absolutely awesome! I adore the delicacy of this particular design. I'm looking forward to the next pic!

I went through your "heritage sampler" posts but didn't see who designed it. Is it a TW?? Whatever it is, it is beautiful. And boy do I know how many hours goes into a piece like this!
