I made a selfish choice, and went with the piece I really wanted to make for myself.
I’ll definitely get back to ANZAC some time, but not when I have so many other balls in the air. One of the embroidery pieces I’ve been contemplating needs a lot of counting and planning and I still have to make a chart. So that’ll have to wait too. The other needs a major investment in a lot of skeins of different colours. This one ticked the boxes. No chart to create, no millions of colours, just two.
Well, it’s another sampler. No big surprise there, since it’s common knowledge that I love them. Two colours, not one, gasp! It’ll be larger than the last one, by quite a margin, worked on 16 count Aida in dark navy and mid blue. What you’re seeing is the mid blue. Some fun borders, some nice lettering, a few flourishes. Some quite tiny stitches – 16 count, what was I thinking – but at least it keeps the thing a manageable size. This is a small section of the top left corner.
As always, it’s worth your while visiting the other SAL stitchers, even if they’re not posting progress today. Don’t forget about the difference in time zones; if you’re seeing me first, you may need to drop in to theirs a bit later to give them a chance to get their posts up.
