I’ve had a chance to do a fair bit of hand stitching in the last two days.
The blue sampler has reaped the benefit; I got another chunk of the left hand border done and made a start on the next row of letters. This border’s very soothing to stitch, lots of repetition and no counting! The one on the other side is another story, which is absolutely the reason I took the easy option 🙂
Below the letter R, everything gets pretty and twiddly again. More decorative blocks, more floral borders… In the interests of the design, I’m leaving the W out as well. This isn’t a teaching sampler, it’s allowed to be just for pretty, and I think it looks prettier without. I’m really looking forward to the three blocks of dense design along the bottom.
As always, the others in the SAL will have something lovely to show. We’re on different time zones and you may have to wait a while before all the posts are up, so keep checking back!
