Marquior Marie~Rose part one

Last Friday, while going through blog links, I found this sampler which has just started as a 9~part free chart. I decided right then and there that I want to stitch this to add to the list of historic samplers I want to make and hang in our home. This is being charted up by Anne~Valerie who's step~mother's great grandmother stitched this sampler back in the 19th century. If you would like to read more about it or stitch it check out her at: http://avmitten.over-blog.com/ .

I am stitching mine on 36 count Irish cream linen. I changed the colors to deeper shades using DMC 3688, 3347, 3802 and 3808.

Looks like you are off to a good start and I think the colors you picked are more vibrant! It will be fun to watch your progress.

Cheerful colors, Heidi! Enjoy the project; these online projects-in-parts are such fun. I just wish I could do them all :)
