I am feeling better now and can pretty much do what I need to do, especially stitch. When I first saw this sampler I loved the band that was above the Tree of Life because it was not straight, but slanted. I loved the birds peeking out from the tree and I loved the apples. I am almost finished with the last section of the middle row and then I only have the bottom of the sampler to finish.
Anyway, here is Matilda as of today. I have really become attached to her....in fact after SDW arrived I was going to work on both of them at the same time. I usually am a "one sampler at a time" person, but I absolutely love these SL charts.....but in the end I couldn't put Matilda aside (once I was able to pick up a needle again that is....grins) so it is Matilda and I together until the finish. After all, it is so much fun to look forward to something and what can be more fun then looking forward to stitching another SL sampler or two, or three, or four....winks.
I hope all of you are having a good day, filled with the people you love and the things that bring you joy. And even if you cannot stitch on your sampler today, how wonderful that it can still bring you joy just by being there, waiting until you can pick up a needle again. Isn't it wonderful that we all share this simple pleasure of stitching? Nicola, I know you here this at least once every day....but this was such a wonderful idea....thank-you for bringing us together to bring joy to each other simply by stitching!
Happy Stitching Every One!
