Ruthy Rogers

First of all I want to thank Marsha,  Nicola and Krista for the Easter Egg Hunt. It was a lot of fun!! I can't believe I won! I just love the sampler "All Was For An Appil".
Next I would like to show my start on Ruthy. I am slowly stitching away and enjoying every minute of it.

Congratulations Debbie on winning your new chart! How exciting! "All Was For An Apple" has always looked like it would be a fun stitch. Enjoy! Your start on Ruthy looks wonderful! I am really looking forward to posts about Ruthy because she is out of my comfort zone stitch wise, so maybe a little at a time will build up my confidence :)

Your satin stitch leaves are very well done. I am so excited to be stitching Ruthy with you.

The hardest part is the first stitch. Everything that is not done in counted cross, is outlined in counted back stitch. Ruthy is not a bear, once you break her down into these bits. The filling stitches are simple enough- it's like "needle painting". I hope others will be inspired to try this sampler because you don't know what's out there until you extend your comfort zone and realize how easy it is.

So true what Marsha just said. Some samplers you look at them and think how am I going to do this one. You put your first couple of stitches in and you are off. Ruthy is looking really lovely. I love the colours so far.
