The Sampler Lady Update

I have been working hard to meet the September 11 deadline and I think I will make it. I have been quite busy since last report (Aug. 11). I just have to fill in the leaves, add a few flowers and fill in the area below her feet (these are supposed to be thread spools and I need to add the thread). I decided to do French knots for my hair. I may use the suggestion by Christine to make wire eye glasses and I am not sure I like the letters. I am contemplating backstitching with dark green maybe to make the stick out more. I will wait until it is completed and decide then. As always suggestions are welcome!

I have been working on a fun surprise for my sister –in-laws 60th birthday coming up (Aug.31), getting ready for my mother in law to visit (she comes today), so it has been hectic!! I will fill you in on the birthday surprise once she gets the package, which is still in the works. I have until Saturday Aug. 27 at the latest to mail it priority mail to get it there in time. It has been fun working on and that is about all I can say for now.

Happy Monday everyone!!

Really like the French knots for the hair! Have you thought about pulling the red from the heart in the corner of the apron to back stitch the alpha in..?? Or, would that make it look to Christmas-y..?? It's looking wonderful!
