This is Diligence, the sampler I have chosen to stitch for the challenge. My friend Anne - who will be writing separately - and I chose it for the border, especially the daisy corners and the verse. That little figure at the door is interesting too. Who can he be?
We live in Hartlepool, a coastal town in the North East of England, about 350 miles north of London.
We are a little late in starting, in fact our sampler kits are winging their way across the Atlantic Ocean as we speak, so really - perhaps everyone else should stop stitching now so that Anne and I can catch up!
Too much to ask?
OK. We will just relax and enjoy the project, however long it takes us.
We are so looking forward to it and to watching the progress we and others make.
