I'm an away swan. That means I am a member of the Salt Lake City Swan Sampler Guild. But I don't live in Utah. I live far away. But the Swan Sampler Guild is very thoughtful and will let me sign up for kits even though I can't be there for class. I signed up for Betsy Morgan's Pioneer Girl.
It is a new design. I saw Betsy stitching on it when I was at Williamsburg last December. The design is so nifty.
I wanted to make it so bad. So now I can. My kit came in the mail over the weekend. Now if I didn't have so much other stuff to do, I'd start it.
I started stitching on another Betsy project actually. I saw Elizabethan Eights on Facebook and was reminded that I have the pattern.
I can make it too. I just needed the threads and I got those when I was at Stitchville. I like the Celtic cross border that is done with pearl cotton. I got the first of eight sides done yesterday. Ta-dah!
The next side is a spot sampler design. I want to work on that today.
