Start of the Back

For those of you curious on this fabulous project, this is the 2nd part of Dames of the Needle "Sampler Purse". You must look it up, it is so different. A must have for Sampler Lovers! Using 32ct Vintage Woodsmoke Lakeside with Gloriana & SNC threads.

I have started the 2nd panel of the pattern, curious as to why it is upside down? Well, dont worry, it is on purpose. This will be the back of the purse, and when finished it will be right side up! If you look at the closeup of the last picture, you can see some of the fancy stitches-- Alternating Tent Stitch. It seemed like forever to fill in such a small environment, but I do like the texture it gives the piece. Amazing how fun it is to think I could be using this fabulous bag in no time at all!

I have worked on Bea a tiny bit, not really enough progress to show you, but in a few days. I am excited to work on the purse, perhaps I could have the stitching done with in a few days!!!!!! We shall see.


  1. Oh I just love it! I may have to get this one. Sigh. Looking forward to more!

  2. You have definitely peaked my curiousity - I can't wait to see more of this one.

    Enjoy your afternoon

  3. Great progress! You must be a really fast stitcher! I've got a crick in my neck from trying to see it right side up though!

  4. Fabulous progress! It's such a pretty piece. I hate doing tent stitch but it is nice to see the texture it gives a piece.

  5. Such progress!! I can't wait to see the blackbirds!!

  6. Wow! So beautiful! Looking forward to seeing this progress.


Thank you for stopping by! I enjoy reading your comments :)
