A couple nights ago, I met up with some GFs and brought the Polly Miner sampler with me. It is a nice project to have in the bag as the alphabets are easier to stitch while chatting w/friends.
For Nicola's Scarlet Letter year (challenge), I try to get an updated photo on the challenge blog by the 14th. I had a (sorta awful) photo taken while out with the GFs, came home + wanted to continue stitching and finish the last line on the sampler.
My little supervisor, Honey Bunny, dozed off ....
When I got the alphabet letters stitched, I turned on my camera, flipped the thing over, the kitty woke up, and .... gasp ...
I thought my needlework was a goner ---
I inspected --- nope, no kitty claw damage. Whew.
and, she inspected with me .... was she thinking
Last night, I added some border on the side and a few numbers. Still didn't find any kitty damage. When you stitch a repro, don't you wonder about the stitcher - here a child of 7 years. Do you think she enjoyed her needlework? Wonder if she fretted over the last line going beyond her border?
Will have to get more needlework into this piece (even tho I had set it aside to work on with friends).
