Then, since I was free again to work on whatever I wanted to, I pulled AW 1662 back out. This is the progress I have made since last post.

I am really enjoying working on this and will continue to do so for a couple of days but will have to move back to birthday stitching this weekend (and hope I haven't cut my time too short!).
At our EGA meeting on Tuesday we were given the pleasure of seeing Barbara Hutson of Queenstown Sampler Designs. She gave a presentation on the history of some of her recent reproductions, a lovely sampler display, as well as a very interesting description of what is entailed in the purchase, conservation, and charting of the samplers she has in her collection. It is always so wonderful to see her. She's so cheerful and so willing to share her knowledge. Thanks for coming Barbara!!
I brought my camera but didn't take any pictures. DUH. The meetings are always so hectic for me (the treasurer) and it was all over before I thought to take it out of my bag! But I did manage to scoop up a new sampler chart though!!

Small and lovely and as soon as the rest of the threads get here (I just got an email that they are in the mail) I will be starting it!! I know, I know, supposed to be working on UFO's. But we need those occasional new starts to keep the creative juices flowing!!! And this is just a small one after all.
