Finally ... Finally ... Finally!

SARAH HARVEY 1737 is now complete! She took a little longer than anticipated, but here she is ... ready for her closeup!
Scarlet Letter's 'SARAH HARVEY 1737' (an adaptation of the reproduction)
Fabric: 40 count 'Lambswool' Linen from the Scarlet Letter
Fibers: AVAS silks

Not really sure what was going on with our relationship, but we were continuously plagued by little, silly, and frustrating moments. Nothing serious ... the relationship was never in jeopardy of ending ... but I can say I am very happy to have made it through to the end ... Whew!  She's now on her way to the very talented hands of Jill Rensel and company for framing ... can't wait to see what magic they work up for her!
Moving on, I'm going to try and work on two projects simultaneously ... never been successful at that before ... but I'm going to give it a good try. I've already started a bit on Scarlet Letter's MARY BAILEY 1818 (I'll share the progress in my next post), and have just ordered the silks for Scarlet Letter's THE HUNTSMAN. Don't know yet if I'll put them on a schedule or just stitch what is calling to me.
Here in western Pennsylvania USA we had delightful Spring weather this past weekend with lots of sunshine and temps in the high 70's ... things are a changing' today ... winds with cold rain/wet snow are quickly bringing Spring to a halt! ... we might even reach a record low tonight! ... arrrrgghh ... I'm afraid my sweet daffodils and the blossoms on my magnolia tree will be shriveled brown buds by morning ... arrrrgghhh and arrrggghhh! And to top it off ... complainin' ain't going to change a thing!
So that's about all for now. As always, thank you for stopping by for a visit ... I love hearing from you!
Until next time ...
God Bless,

  1. Beautiful finish!! Funny how so many of these samplers don't catch the eye when looking at Marsha's site but then become 'must have's' when we see them stitched!! Good luck with your rotation!! I have just recently been able to make it work for me and it sure keeps the stitching interesting!! Laura

  2. Beautiful finish!! Love everything about this one. There are so many amazing SL samplers it is hard to choose sometimes!

  3. Wow looking so beautiful
    Well done dear
    Huge hugs x

  4. Lanie, another jaw dropping finish! I'm completely charmed by your bright birds. Isn't if funny how different a piece looks once yoj've seen it actually stitched up? Love this one, and probably wouldn't have considered it without your beautiful work.

  5. What a gorgeous finish! I so need to get this one! Did you use the called for colors? You must have. Gorgeous! I love Mary Bailey -- and the Huntsman. Can't wait to watch your progress! Again, I want to stitch both of those. lol!

  6. Congratulations on a beautiful finish! She is lovely!

  7. My kind of sampler. Your work on her is perfection! Yes it's very cold tonight. I thought I was done herding cats!

  8. Gorgeous finish! I love those birds!

  9. Wow--what a masterpiece, Lanie! Glad you persevered with her--the end result was worth any struggles :)

    Yes, this weather is just plain strange... At least it looks sunny for Easter weekend. Wishing you and your family a wonderful time together!

  10. 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 expensive..so 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 negative..it was like a dream,,I never believed hiv has a cure..am 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 drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com 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 https://drituaherbalcenter.com/shop/
