My Little Sampler

I couldn't resist starting this one. At first I was dragging through it, I was stitching it 2 over 2 and the stitches looked so squished together that I ripped it out and re-stitched it 1 over 2. Of course I now know that the reason they looked squished was because I had just finished stitching on 18ct and now it looks too light but I'm not ripping anything out and have convinced myself that I was going for a delicate look hehe. Anyway here's my progress on Brightneedle's The Sampler Sampler.
I'm going to continue stitching on this probably until Christmas and then I'll start on my Fair and Square Exchange piece. TTFN

I agree, the *delicate* look & light colors are a pretty interpretation of the design. Happy holidays :-)

Love your sampler. I just finished a portion of it as a Christmas gift. I used 3 of the 9 motifs. It is such a delicate design, but really like it. Great start. It really does stitch fast. Mine was 2 over 2 on 28-ct. There is a picture on my blog.

That looks really nice done with one thread. I have the chart in my stash, I must try and remember that for when I stitch it ... probably in 2029, but I can hope...!
