I DO have a pic of my progress on the Iris Sampler. Looks pretty good, don't you think?? I need to chart a "2" for the year, since the original design was from 1990. I also squished some of the alphabet so I could fit the whole thing -- the original left out u, y and z. Since it isn't a true reproduction sampler, and it isn't as if some precocious 8 year-old left out a letter or 2 by mistake, I decided that this could not stand. So the c, i, n, o, and v got squashed....oh, and the y is one stitch narrower, too. Now I just need to finish the row of herringbone stitch under the alphabet, add the bird in the empty space on the right side, and fill in a few other spots. I see a finish in the near future!
Until next time...may you look at dandelions through the eyes of a child, where they are flowers instead of weeds.
