My New Project! Sara Schultz ~ 1827
Good evening! Here in the Shenandoah today the sun was shining and only a slight skiff of snow was seen from our snowfall last night. I did not get called in to sub today so I had a few hours to stitch! I wanted to show you my newest project, Sara Schultz from Ginger and Spice. This is one of my "Santa Presents" and I am really enjoying stitching her! I bought the fabric and thread on Monday and have gotten a good start on her, I think.
This is the pattern book. It says that the sampler is in the collection of the Reading Public Museum. Guess the next time hubby and I are in PA we will have to swing by and take a look at the REAL Sara!
This is a closer shot of the sampler. I am trying to hurry through the letters so that I can get started on the beautiful motifs!
This is what I have stitched so far...
Here are the threads...the picture does not do them justice. I chose 28 ct. Zweigart Antique Cashel Country Grain fabric and sampler threads Dark Chocolate (Gentle Art), Gingersnap and Toffee (Simply Shaker.) These colors remind me of a really good latte with an extra shot of espresso! YUM!
Well, I am off to get supper ready and stitch a little bit more. I hope all is well with everyone and you have been able to find some time to stitch today! Till next time...Happy Stitching!
