I've also decided to join Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year Challenge. Nicola turns 50 this month and has decided to celebrate by stitching a series of Scarlet Letter reproduction samplers over the next year and inviting other stitchers to join the challenge. She's gotten great response to this, and has many small challenges and prizes going on. I've chosen SDW, A German Band Sampler circa 1710 as the piece I'll stitch for this challenge. I still have to order the chart, fabrics, and threads, but this is the one I've chosen:

This sampler will make a wonderful companion piece to And They Sinned, the sampler I'll be starting as soon as my Lakeside Linen fabric comes in. There's been a delay due to illness in the family of the ladies who own LL, but hopefully it will be in soon. Both SDW and ATS are about 45" tall, with SDW being just a bit wider than ATS. I'd love to have both of them on my wall!
