Hello all, as you can see I am rejoicing today – I finally managed to finish Mary Thompson’s Quaker Sampler this week.

I started her as part of a stitch-along with some of my stitching girlfriends here in Perth. We started in January last year and my original aim was to complete a motif a week… she was put aside quite a bit poor lass, but I refused to call her a UFO and she was finally completed this week on Thursday night. She is stitched on Edinburgh linen with AVAS silks. She is absolutely gorgeous.

Mary Thompson completed!

I love her. I think I know just where to place her in my stitching room once she is in a frame.
