I was so sure that this week I would be sharing a finished Winter Sampler, but I am just not quite there as it turns out. But close! I only have snow left to fill in, some snowflakes and then a tiny bit of backstitching and I can call this one done. So, maybe by the end of next weekend?
I am so ready to move on to my Spring Sampler now that it is officially Spring and is actually feeling like it. Why not begin preparations and put in a few stitches? This is my next seasonal sampler. Basically the same color scheme, though, thankfully no white! Time to think about planting a garden. I quite like this design even if the palette is essentially the same down to the colors of the house (the next couple of seasons will vary just a bit).
And here they are . . . first stitches. Once again I am starting with a door in to the house. A nice shape, don't you think? Sorry for the glare--I took the photo close to a lamp so the floss has a weird shine to it, but hopefully next week's photo will be better and there should be more to see. Now to just not get too distracted by my new sampler (the joy of a new project!) and finish those patches of snow! I am still contemplating working on some other little 'in progress' design--the Quaker Heart being the best choice, but I have loads of barely started (or in a few cases nearly finished!) needlework projects. We'll see what inspiration (if any) comes along between now and next week!
