Anyway, my dearest gifted me with the entire kit for Dorothy Walpole by The Scarlet Letter. I forgot to take a photo of the kit, but it is the overdyed silk conversion done by The Attic and 40 ct Lentil linen by Lakeside Linens. What a wonderful set of silks to stitch with. I will try to capture the silks in the next update of this piece. I was tempted to start it before I even finished opening my other gifts! Then we had guests until Jan 1, so I didn't even get a single stitch in anything until the afternoon of Jan 1. So here is my January progress on the lovely Dorothy.

Here is a photo of the completed sampler from cover of the pattern. I am sure a much better photo can be found at the The Scarlet Letter. Be warned - you may be tempted by many of the wonderful samplers there.
We have had nothing but cold rain for the last 2 weeks. Although it isn't snow, it still manages to make my old bones ache. I am ready for some spring weather. I miss having a garden of spring flowers so I treated myself to a beautiful pot of daffodils. They are one of my favorite flowers and I hope they make you smile too.
Have a great stitching day!
