My french birdcage is coming along nicely most of the accessories are stitched and ready for construction. No photos sorry. I have agreed with the designer to only show finished pieces and I will be honoring her wishes. So I will post photos when I have completed some of the smaller items.
My little house is growing slowly, this is how it looks now with another side of the building stitched.

I have been watching with interest all the wonderful samplers that have been started and restarted on many blogsites. Nicola's wonderful idea of a year long project stitch along has fueled a wonderful resurgence in interest of historic samplers. Many years ago I was lucky to find The Scarlett Letter website and fell in love with their samplers and bought several. They sit patiently waiting to be completed, some started. Methinks its time to pick one up and put it into the stitching rotation.
Bye for now, Carol
