Women of the Mayflower Update/Fabrics for Sale

I finally tackled the rest of the ship on this sampler tonight. It really took a while to stitch it using the diagonal satin stitch. It was a little tricky to get into the rhythm and count it correctly to get those little flower-like motifs within the diagonal satin stitch. I have been avoiding it, but decided to do it today. Now the rest of the sampler will be very quick and easy.

I saw in Jenna's blog today that she has received the belated birthday gift that I stitched for her - I wish I had taken a better photo of the fob... it is modeled here with my silly pink bunny scissors by Dinky Dyes - they matched the colors of the fob well :-)
