Margret Gatis - Day 4

Today's stitching experience on this sampler was not a good one... ran into lots of discrepancies between the chart, the picture and the instructions ... I was hoping to just stitch and not think too much so sat down to continue working on this sampler.  Well, it was not to be - lots of stitching, reverse stitching, then thinking and figuring, and a bunch of hours later here is the result - not much progress to report... and it also proved that I need to follow my usual stitching routines and not just blindly follow the chart.

Nupur: It may not look like much to you (especially for the time spent), but you are making marvelous progress for all the problems you have encountered. Your stitching is exquisite and I'm looking fwd. to your next photo.

Yes, I agree with JoAnn, your progress is impressive!!...I am now having nervous fits about that band!! I am stitching on a Scottish sampler right now, but I have to get back to MG sooner or later...

This is absolutely gorgeous, Nupur! Frustrating as your stitching day was, you certainly have quite a bit done!

I know exactly how you feel. That's why I laid it aside several times. But you're making amazing progress and it is gorgeous.

Persevere!! You'll get it done.
