Emma Miles

I am very happy to say that I have the first color of the border completed all the way around, and it met the first time!!!  I used the "do 9 half stitches and cross the 10th" method for more accurate counting, but I was still surprised that it ended up correctly.  I need to put Emma aside to work on a wedding sampler, but I am hoping to be back to Emma within 2 or 3 weeks.

I have been really enjoying reading both of these blogs and seeing the amazing array of samplers!  Thank you Nicola.

Yay! Always great when the border meets all the way around. I had never heard of that method but will remember it for the future.

Your tip to cross the tenth is a great one and I have already put it to good use. It makes long rows so easy to stitch to the right number.

Well done on your border meeting up, it is always a relief.

It's so exciting when those borders meet up. Congrats! It is a big deal that only another stitcher 'gets'.
