Hello Stitching Friends!
I cannot believe that August is well underway and I haven't updated my monthly note.  I hope that you are keeping busy and having a good summer. Mine has been full of grandchildren, baking, charting, designing, playing with Charlie, helping my daughter & her family move to a farm, and stitching. I just posted my Raisin Bread Recipe on my Free PDF page. The recipe is easy and delicious!

I enjoyed sharing my Scottish Samplers on Zoom with members of the Tudor Rose Sampler Guild last week. The sampler guild is located in the Dallas-Fort Worth area but members seemed to be from all over the country. 

I'm still learning Flosstube as you can see if you have watched 'Cissy's Gentle Pursuit Designs'. I need a lesson on combining videos and posting photos but am forging ahead without the lesson. I plan to film the next Flosstube from my bedroom where 33 samplers share the space with me.

I've finished charting Christina McLellan 1821 of Glasgow and the materials for the model will be going home with my friend Sharon soon. It is a gorgeous sampler and will be released next year.
The reproduction of Ann Woods 1845 is almost charted and I'm stitching away on my Autumn Sampler Compendium. I might be finished by now if I didn't keep thinking of new things to add...like a gold Satin Stitch border around the front and back pages.  With diligence, both will be on my website and available for the Virtual EXPO the end of August.

Thank you for your thoughtfulness in purchasing from my website. So far, only my website and Jean Lea carry my Red House Sampler Patriotic Etui and rare Scottish Mini 4 Commandment Sampler.  Both have been featured in the Attic July & August Newsletters.
I do have a few complete kits of the sampler available. Let me know if you would like one. Stay safe.
Hugs,
Cissy
