18th Century Sampler, Progress #2

You haven't seen this for quite awhile.  That's because I didn't work on it for quite awhile--the Gardener's Alphabet took over!

This is Susan Johnson's 18th Century Sampler online class.  I have now completed the center row of 5 squares and 4 borders, a narrow one and a wide one on each side of the center squares.  The narrow borders are actually a dark teal Kreinik braid, but as usual the metallic doesn't show up very well. 
I have just begun a row of circular motifs--just 1/4 of the center circle.  Oh, and by the way, the canvas is Aquamarina.  I don't know why it didn't photograph that color!
