An Ending and A New Beginning ...

Hello all ... happy Monday!

Well that post title is a little dramatic isn't it?! ... but I do have a finished project and a new project to share with you.

I finished MARION ROBERTSON 1834 a few weeks ago and have sent her off to
Jill Rensel's Studio for framing ...
Scarlet Letter's Marion Robertson 1834
Fabric: 40 count 'Sandstone' linen from Scarlet Letter
Fibers: AVAS silks
Miss Marion was delightful to stitch and I can't wait to see what framing magic Jill and Amber come up with for her!

My new project is another Scarlet Letter sampler ... MARIA IGNACIA OLIVERA

She is a Mexican sampler originally stitched c.1850. The motifs used are mostly European but the bright color palette is greatly influenced by the Chinese silks and finished goods from the Orient that were widely traded commodities in New Spain.
With her lovely colors and a few 'new-to-me' stitches, I think she is going to be great fun to stitch!
So December is the month of busy, busy, busy ... but I do hope we all find a few moments to relax with our stitching.
Until next time ...
God Bless!

  8. Thank you for this beautiful post and you have been really doing great things with your blog, Did anyone here know that medical scientists have discovered a new way to battle hiv aids by using a man called dr itua. My name is Maria Lucia from California.i saw a comment on positive blogs and i will love to tell everybody how my status changes to negative and i got cured, and am now a living witness of it and i think it's a shame on me if i don't share this lovely story with other people infected with this deadly virus. hiv has been ongoing in my family, i lost both parents to hiv. and it is so much pain I've not been able to get over. As we all know medically there is no solution to it..and medication is very someone introduced me to a herbal practitioner in africa, i had a job there to execute so i took time to check out on him.i showed him all my tests and results. I was already disorganized with hiv and it was already taking its toll on me..
    I had spent thousands of dollars so I decided to try him out. Although I didn't believe in it, I was just trying it out of frustration? and after 14 days, he told me to go for a medical test. and you won't believe that 5 different doctors confirmed that I am was like a dream,,I never believed hiv has a now negative, am a living witness..i don't know how to thank this man? I just want to help others in any way I can. I have joined many forums and have posted these testimonies and a lot of people have emailed and called this man on the phone and after 14 days they all confirmed negative. BBC news took it live and everybody saw it and it's now out in papers and magazines that there is a herbal cure for HIV and all with the help of this man, if you wish to take it or not.god knows i have tried my best. About 28 people have been confirmed negative through the herbal cure of dr itua and they send mails to thank me after they have been confirmed negative,,this man is real..don't miss this chance,,hiv is a deadly virus,,get rid of it now. if there is anyone who has similar problem and still looking for a way out, his email still remains or call or whatsapp him on +2348149277967 doctor itua can as well cure the following disease:- hiv/aids, herpes,cancer, als,hepatitis b,diabetes or visit his herbs store
