I have been working on some of the motifs on the bottom of the sampler. I am surprised how creatively Mary Ann used the 12 colors of thread she had, it really is turning out very bright and cheery. I am thinking about changing the Christmas carol verse in the sampler. This is my first cross stitch sampler and I would like to display it all year not just at Christmas. I think without the influence of the carol the colors do not seem as Christmasy, just spring like.
I have some graft paper I printed off of a free website and I am going to play around with centering a new verse and rearranging the rest of the sampler motifs. This should put my math skills to the test : )
Happy Stitching All,
