Here's my progress on Jane Longstreth after its last round in my rotation. I'm hoping to finish up the over-one lettering in the box and the flowers in the basket the next time I stitch on this. Several people commented that they were not familiar with this sampler. It was published to help preserve the samplers in the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College. Jane was a Quaker from Chester County, PA which is close to where I live so that added to its appeal. I have seen the sampler on The Attic's website (no affliation) and perhaps other shops have it as well.

Wow Susan you have made progress well done. I like the bright colours on this one. I'm not going to check out what this looks like when complete but will wait for your next progress pic so it will be like a mystery.
