Mansfield Park update

I had such enjoyment working on Mansfield Park last weekend--I decided that instead of just stitching on it on Sunday afternoons I would continue stitching on it all week! Here's my progress for the week:


Mansfield Park (The Sampler Girl)
stitched on 35 count linen using the DMC conversion listed on the chart

I've almost finished stitching the house, of course I noticed that the house wasn't symmetrical half-way through, so I had to make some adjustments (I had already stitched the roof line and didn't want to frog it) to the windows and the door, but it seems to have worked out OK.

I'll be bringing this one along to work with me again this week and making it the main focus of my at-home stitching as well. I'm really looking forward to having it finished and hanging up as the start of my 'literary' stitching wall!

I'm glad you are enjoying this so much that you want to spend more time on it. This way it should be finished in no time!

From the looks of the house, this is going to be a wonderful, colorful sampler. I love samplers. Looking forward to your next update.
