It's So Doable Is Our Ann Lawle

As a fellow stitcher commented on my last post, enjoy it because it will all be over in a flash! She's right, Ann is moving right along and I am now over halfway down the horizontal grid.
 
Now that I am In the thick of it I cannot believe that I felt intimidated at taking this cutwork portion of the sampler on. It's So Doable!
 
I am really, really pleased I made the decision to 'just start'....

 
So exciting seeing a design emerging


What fun I am having with this sampler, loving it

So pretty! so inspiring! and you make it sound as easy as falling off a log (now I KNOW I can do that! but, cutwork? hmmmm....)
This is a beautiful piece of work and boy the more I see, the more I want to do. Thanks for the encouragement!

Absolutely right- it's very do-able. You start by practicing on a separate scrap of linen (that's what I did) and once you have the confidence, go on to the big girl. If you have a steady hand (and who doesn't, stitching these challenging samplers?) and a nice sharp scissors, it can be quite fun! (This said by a slightly demented person who adores Hungarian flame point stitch and is currently designing a piece loaded with it. Sorry.)

Absolutely beautiful. I have always wanted to have a go at doing a band sampler with cutwork on it. Looking forward to seeing more of it.
