Progress on Diligence

Testing, Testing. I am to blogging what a toddler is to walking so here's hoping I can do this without falling over.

Here is my progress on Diligence so far.

Well, that seemed to work.  On to the next pic.
I actually enjoy stitching verses and I don't mind stitching over one, however, this verse took a lot of concentration (and thread). I suspect I may be a little OCD since I like to have the same number of stitches in a letter (e.g. "a") and the same number of threads between words. There is so much variation in the verse that I couldn't go into autopilot and had to count and re-count to keep me right.
Still, that's what makes this a challenge and keeps the old brain ticking over.

On another subject, I have to take issue with Nicola and Jo. Why don't the two blogs come with a wealth warning?  I keep seeing all these gorgeous samplers and all I can think is "I want that one, or that one and then there's that one". It's not fair!

Well, I seemed to have managed to blog without falling on my bum or banging my head so there may be hope for me yet.

Regards, Anne

Thank you for posting the photos. I love the verse. Yet another sampler to add to my "maybe someday" list.

I am glad to see you made your first post Anne :o))

Diligence is one of the prettiest samplers.

Your photos are great, I am not so fond of verses so can you do all of mine??? LOL, congrats on the post and the beautiful sampler.

Anne, your sampler is beautiful! I look forward to seeing future updates.
Also, I agree with your statement about the warning about the funds we all will be spending. :-) I know my wish list grows every day I check in here! So many beautiful samplers to see - everyone has chosen such gorgeous selections, including you. (Yep, that's right, I added this one to the list after seeing your progress above.)

That border is beautiful! Your over one verse is so neat and well done.
