Older IS better.

My Iris Sampler/"Older and Better" project.I'm stitching mine on 32-ct. Bay Rum jobelan, instead of the 28-ct. fabric used for the model. I wasn't thrilled with the way the rice stitch (in the basket) turned out as charted, so I did the bottom stitches with 2 strands as called for but did the overlay stitches with just 1 strand. It looks a bit more delicate, but I like it! And I'm using Six-Strand Sweets "Spice Drop" for the dark green flower stem and border.
I'll try to get a better picture later...
