Ellenor was such a pretty sampler to work on.
EK 1653 has quite a few similarities to Ellenor and I found that switching back and forth between the two worked quite well.
I adapted my EK from the original by inserting the lines of a favourite poem that means a great deal to me and my sisters.
My new start is Ruthy Rogers also by The Scarlet Letter
Ruthy is quite a different sampler for me and I am out of my comfort zone.
After seeing Barbara's stitched Ruthy I just had to have a go at stitching her.
Didn't Barbara do an amazing job on hers?
I will post again when Ellenor and EK are back from the framers with detailed photos.
