Terry’s Amazing Progress on Alice!

Just amazed by the work of Terry Gaab Niemczura! After only 8 weeks this is her progress on Alice Smith.  Absolutely incredible work, Terry! Looking forward to your progress updates.  A bit of info on Terry’s version: she’s stitching on the called for Lakeside Pecan Butter using 46 ct and has converted the DMC to Tudor silks.  She has stitched the sampler as charted except has given the seated woman a face and mob cap.

Elizabeth Strickland, 1862

And added to the lineup, beautiful Elizabeth Strickland! Stitched in Needlepoint Inc silk on Weeks 36 ct Parchment, a DMC conversion is provided. Stitch count is 181 x 196. I really love how the framing sets off the colors of the sampler – framing was done by Edith Antl of Art Etc. Picture Framing in Cleveland Ohio. Stitching was done by the very talented Robert Smith.  Released March, 2018.

He Restoreth My Soul

He Restoreth My Soul

This year Victorian Rose will be releasing a new series based on beloved Scripture passages. Just released at the Nashville market in March is the first in the series, a sampler inspired by the 23rd Psalm. How comforting to know that Jesus is the gentle Shepherd who guides us to green pastures of everlasting peace and tranquility. He indeed restores our troubled soul. Shown is the gentle Shepherd tending to a flock of sweet, innocent lambs.  The sampler is stitched with DMC on 40 ct Picture This Plus Wren. Stitch count 179 w x 183 h.  Released March, 2018.
