Weekend Progress

This weekend, I worked solely on "My Sewing Sampler" since it had the least amount stitched before I labeled it a UFO.
Blue Ribbon Designs stitched on White Monaco (28ct)

I love the lettering, which I stitched on a 1 over 1, using Gentle Arts "Buckeye Scarlet."

So, there you have it, Challenge Update #1.

I'd love to just sit and watch you work so I could learn how you make everything so pretty.

Oh Ma...I love love love my goodies. I think I have a serious affection for the Crescent Colour floss and now I see the vibrant color of silk and it feels so soft...I've got problems. hehe

Awww thanks, dear ones!

I am kinda proud of myself as the reason that I set it aside as a UFO, a year or so ago, was that the 1 over 1 letters were a bit too overwhelming as I was restarting to cross stitch after a lot of years away from it. :)

I will keep you all posted :)
