Going to the dark side

Yep.  Still wanting to use the dark linens and I think this little sweetie may be perfect for the change.
Barrick Samplers 1848 Reproduction Sampler.
 
How do you think this will look reversed on the very dark Charcoal Gray Belfast with lighter thread? 
 
So far, so good!!

I love those funky girls (or possibly boys given what I've been reading about how children were dressed back in the day). Should be interesting on the dark gray. I guess you'll change the black dress, huh?

This is looking great...waiting to see it finished.

Enjoy the day with LOTS of Peace,

I think it'll look great! The gold letters on the dark linen is reminding me of Scarlet Letter's Jenny Bean sampler. I don't think you'll have any problems with it on the dark.

I think it will work out fine... a few color changes but then you are rolling along!

So excited to see what this will turn out like! I have not stitched on dark colors as I feel my eyes won't be able to see the threads. You bought some beautiful colors. Thanks for sharing.
