Some Finishes and Primitive Quilt Magazine

 First I must apologize for my poor pictures, there must be more to point and shoot.

I finished in December, but am just now getting pictures up.
It is stitched in the called for silk and wool, but I changed the linen to a greyish distressed linen from R & R did not write down the name.

 I also have finished two Scarlet Letter Samplers that were begun who knows when.

Again the photo does not do this sampler justice, I think framing it will allow more of the detail to show up.
When I once again picked up this sampler last week there was not much left to finish.
I recommend not saving the harder bits till the last, not because they are hard, but because I become impatient to finish and find that I want to rush through it.

 Another Scarlet Letter 
ABCD 1817
If you look this one up on the website you will find that mine does not look exactly like it...
The kit did not contain enough of the gold silk and again due to impatience to finish I added the red in its place.  I'm still trying to decide if I like it, but its over one and I think its here to stay.
I'm planing for a different finish for this one so stay tuned for that update.
