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.

Also on the way, Amelie Lambert 1844


Amelie Lambert stitched her sweet sampler in the year 1844.  We see from her sampler the love she had for her parents and just adore the precious pup waiting for Amelie to return home. The sampler was probably her first effort as a young schoolgirl.  Often similar samplers were stitched as a precursor to more elaborate samplers.  Reproduced by permission from the Philadelphia Museum of Art, part of the Whitman Collection.
