Judith Hayle and her pupils

The Ann Holewll Sampler, 1699
SAL info here
I've finished rows 1-3, chart A ... the February stitching assignment!! Yay : )


Nice article re. Juda or Judeth Hayle (teacher), her pupils (their samplers), in SAN-Q, Spring 2001

Which reminded me that I had stitched the Elizabeth Burton 1701 motifs for a Pin Pillow -- photo on SAN-Q cover


Rooted thru nearly everything 'stitchie' in my room ... until I found these squres

I need to find some muslin & locate my wool roving [gotta be someplace around here] ... add a buttonhole stitch edge to both squares ... then, use a chain stitch to join the front & back. Aren't the corners interesting with detached chain stitching?
