Progress Report on the Sampler
I've been working hard on the sampler, and am pleased with the result so far. Have reached the text now and it is proving a real challenge, as Grace stitched it over a 1x1 thread count - might have been OK for her young eyes, but my 63 year old eyes are being challenged, even with very strong magnification! I shall persevere tho - the colours are guesses I'm afraid, the original is so faded with nearly 200 years that it is impossible to guess with accuracy what the colours were.
