Dutch Beauty looks beautiful.You have made a lot of progress! It almost makes me want to stitch it too!
What a lucky daughter to get such a lovely gift!



Your Dutch Beauty looks wonderful. I give anyone credit who can get through it! Don't do too much damage to it - I'm waiting to see more of your progress. And love the quilt your mother gave you!


Your DB is WONDERFUL, but if it's sucking the joy out of your stitching life, put it aside until you don't want to cut it into small tiny little pieces & light it on fire. I get like that with samplers, too. Logically, I should be able to do a page per month or whatever. Realistically there are just some that I can't stitch in large doses. They'll all get done, eventually!

Your new quilt is beautiful!! Your mom is wonderfully talented. :)


What a beautiful quilt!!!

I admire anyone who undertakes this amazing sampler! You've got a lot done already! The quilt your mom made is wonderful and the pic frame and candle holder work perfectly with it.


Paulette, you've gotten so much done on DB! I hear you on the burnout -- especially since you have to stitch the same thing twice -- oops! Sorry! lol! I love the little tabletopper from your mom. She's so sweet! And that picture of Sophie (I think it's Sophie?) when she was younger! Precious!!!!!


Paulette, your posts always make me laugh! I love the colors in the tabletop quilt from your mom, but that spinning monkey, Dutch Beauty, and the "hate" seat are priceless!


Beautiful gift from you mother Paulette. I have the Dutch Beauty but it is only a collectors item. I will never attempt to stitch it. Love and have many of your samplers. You're very talented.


It's so very pretty!!!!!!!!!


Lovely sampler!!!! Great project!


Dutch Beauty looks lovely, Paulette, but I can surely understand your frustration (not a good enough word to describe it, ugh?).

You are very lucky! That table topper from your mother is gorgeous. I love those fabrics and the colors are lovely.
