Portraits

 

Some years ago a magazine article inspired me to stitch a portrait of Elizabeth 1.

 

In the same year I stitched miniatures of Mary, Queen of Scots and Bess of Hardwick. I was on an Elizabethan kick for sure.

 

I had had enough of portraits by the time I finished the three and I returned to stitching my favorite genre: samplers.

 

People kept asking me please to stitch another portrait and I kept saying no -- until DH suggested Catherine the Great.

 

Here are my portraits so far.
