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.



  1. Wonderful progress Ma~~ Over one really slows me down...But looks like you were on a good roll.. Take care, Faye

  2. Great progress. Such neat stitching.

  3. 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

  4. That's beautiful Ma! I love stitching words...after all I am a sampler lover!!
    That color is lovely. Can't wait to see your progress.

  5. very pretty and I love the colour, and the over one will make everything jump.
    As always.

  6. Oh that is lovely :) well done :) hope you are feeling better today sending cyber *hug* to you
    love mouse xxxx

  7. 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 :)


  8. I so like the sampler you started - You definitely need to finish that one - It's awesome !!


I adore kind comments, and though I may not always reply please know that I read and enjoy them all!
