Jessica has finished up her Alchemical Romance sampler and it could have come out more lovely. She used Vikki Clayton's silks on Picture This Plus "Ancient." She said she took her color inspiration from these antique books.
The swap-out she made in the middle is wonderful. In the center of all the symbols meaning gold, she's added the symbol for lead in an appropriate lead-y color. All I can say it that I wish I had thought of it :o).
Jessica has a very nice blog, if you'd like to see more of her stitching and the wonderful photographs she takes. I'm so happy she shared her finish with us. I hope it turns your morning golden as well.
