It looks so great, Karyn. You've done a wonderful job!

I feel badly that I'm trailing so far behind you! I'm working on it this morning! :)

Thanks so much ladies :) You make me blush...this is my first finish, and my first SAL, as I am a "newish" stitcher.

Calico...oh now girl, you are doing great and 'member this is my only crafty talent...you have many going at once ;)

Parsely...never! I can't wait to see you learn and progress :) I just taught myself in May.

Debi...thanks, I do really enjoy it :) all the perty colors of the thread, I am like a kid with a new Barbie outfit

Bizee....I am working on the LHN Colonial Homes...halfway finished now, and I am going to the gentleman

Good job lady!

I had to laugh, I was like.. hmm should I tell her she forgot ab and c,, then I looked again..

now you should tell me to wake up!

Karyn said...

hehehe...you are too funny Devri...actually look close....the alphabet is missing a lower case letter....but which one? I still cannot figure out if the designer meant to leave it out or if it was a booboo :)

Grandma Teakettle's theory is that she did it so that the letters would fit in a nice 3 row patter.

Another stitcher in the SAL said that often, old colonial samplers left out the "j" and "v" since they were not in the original alphabet.

:)
very interesting

I found your blog through a comment yo left on Miss Jane's Stitching blog. The quaker turned out so great! I just love this one and look forward to seeing the Gentleman's Quaker.

I just read your comment that this is your FIRST finish! WOW!!!! Fantastic. I hope you keep with it. I have been stitching since I was 15 and just love it.
