Here is my final finish in honor of Nicola's SL year:
I have been having such trouble uploading photos on blogger from my computer. I had to wait until after the hockey game to use my husband's computer. It's so frustrating, not sure what the problem has been.
I stitched this with the SL kit, 40 count linen and AVAS silks. I stitched 7 vertical threads instead of 6 for the stepped lozenge sharing the bottom of last stitch with the top of the first stitch of the next "step". This just filled the 3x3 square better and made it easier to count. Also be careful with the symbols. There is a capital "Y" which uses gold and a lower case "y" which uses dark coral. The graph follows the original photo and that's why Marsha states follow the graph and not the photo on the cover of the pattern. The sampler includes cross, over one, eyelet and satin.
I hope everyone is staying safe and warm with this crazy weather this winter. I hope to stay in, stitch and watch some Olympics!
