More oldies but goodies
As I don't have any new finishes to show you, I thought I'd post a few more oldies but goodies from my collection. Sorry about all the flash bounces, I don't know how to turn my flash off!
First, Ann Hair 1762 from Scarlet Letter. I know, the frame is ugly, but it is all I could find at the time.
All the over one verse...oh, my, I thought I'd never get through it.
Sarah E Pope, I think it was an old Sheepish pattern.
Polly Coffin, I think an old JoAnne Harvey pattern. Mistake on the Boston band row :(
Hannah Atkins, from the old Historic Samplers book by Pat Ryan. I went a little overboard with the aging,,,
Mary Ann Hutton, Scarlet Letter. I need to unframe (is that a word?) it and remove my initials and year. A simple sampler but quite striking, and very unusual in that is has the Christmas carol.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at these. If I haven't bored you too much, I'll post some more tomorrow.
