Mary Wigham: Part 2

I am not making as much of a progress compared to some in the Stitch-Along — go on to the USA group to see some amazing progress and pictures. Not everyone is using the suggested color schemes. So, you will see some neat interpretations of the sampler. This is what I have so far:

I have had the most enjoyable time filling in each and every stitch:

A little tidbit from The Scarlet Letter on the Quaker Samplers to help you appreciate these historical samplers — Quaker samplers are unique in that the motifs and designs used on them are entirely of the Friends’ own making. The style spread from Europe to America, and remained distinctive even in this widely separated environments. The Quaker designs are reflective of the Quaker theology, extolling the virtues of plainness, of standing apart from the sphere of influence of the outside world, and of peace and serenity (as symbolized by the popular sampler motifs of floating swans, wreaths, floral sprigs, and paired doves).
