I discovered something this past weekend--stitching over-one sections on my "Sampler Farm" is much easier when I can do it sitting close to a window and using lots of natural light! Not that I didn't already know this, but I rarely get to stitch in the morning and lately there have been so few really sunny days, I just don't get the opportunity. I don't wear glasses but I can tell my eyesight is not quite as sharp as it was even five years ago! I do use magnifying glasses for stitching on small count linen or on over-one stitching, but that sunshine made such a difference as well!
I know I just posted an update to my sampler, but I was so happy with the progress I made on my over-one stitching that I had to share these photos as well. I was afraid I would be stuck doing all the over-one at the very end and then it would be so frustrating the project might well get set aside. But I'm feeling quite pleased with myself and I think you can't even tell I counted wrong on this section with the sunflowers.
I've also been working on a couple other projects, so next time I'll share my work on those. I do love it when I get so wrapped up in a project, though, that I don't want to put it down, as this is when I enjoy stitching the most!
