Good morning everyone!
Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post about Abigail's birth sampler.
I kinda got tired of working on this piece and was in the mood for something new and different than what I have been working on lately. On pinterest I found a free pattern called Green Quaker Sampler. I went to my stash and found the 16 count fabric that it called for (there's was white, all I had was antique white) I am using some DMC and some Gentle Arts. I have not worked on aida in a very long time. Not so hard on the eyes. Started this on Jan 21,2013 and here is my progress as of last night.
So far I have just done the cross stitching, but there is also a number of other stitches to be added to this piece.
They are Algerian Eyelet, Rhodes, Smyrna Cross, Rice, Ray, and Upright cross. Should be pretty cool when done. I started stitching this piece without the Q-Snap but my left shoulder started hurting, I think I was tensing up while holding it. Now with the Q-Snap no more pain. Funny how that works.
Well I better get dressed and go out to feed my baby calf , chickens and the spoiled dogs. Then its off to town and get my glasses fixed and get my nails done. ( and the spoiled dogs need some treats)
