Freelove Hazard

I am excited to be taking part in Nicola's Scarlet Letter 2013 Challenge.

For my first sampler, I have chosen Freelove Hazard .

Freelove Hazard 1792 - The Scarlet Letter

I have had this in my stash for the longest time.
I just love all the birds and colors in it! I also love that name! It always sounds to me like a 60's Hippie chick!

I spent yesterday kitting it up. Au Ver a Soie is my silk of choice, however I did not have all the colors. Where necessary, I substituted with Elsa Williams and Splendor. I think they are very close matches.

I am very anxious to get started, however I do have some holiday stitching that I need to finish, so it will be a little while before I can start.

After Freelove, I am not sure what I will stitch. I have several SL samplers in my stash, including 17 Sailors.
I also want to stitch Jane Atkinson.

I stitched Freelove -- she was a pleasure to stitch too! I think Nicola's challenge is going to be a bad temptation for me. I don't have 17 sailors and I love it! Same story for Rachel Ayres. lol!

Gorgeous choice, I actually know a lady called Freelove Blake and she is a sweetheart.

Your sampler is going to be so beautiful.

Freelove Hazard!! How fun. I want to stitch her sampler even if it's just because of the name. LOL
