I've been stitching like a mad woman. I am so anxious to finish this sampler. The birds need their beaks, panes need to be added to the windows, the alphabet done in Algerian eyelet needs completed, and of course, the border does, too. This sampler gets better with each stitch. The reason for wanting this piece finished is because I recently added two new charts to my stash. I have not decided which one to start next, but here they are: The first one is the newest design by my very favorite, Brenda Keyes, of The Sampler Company. It is called Red House Sampler. It is one of the most beautiful samplers that I have ever seen. It arrived from across the pond the other day. I almost tackled our mailman as he made his way up our walkway, so excited was I. This one will be pure joy to stitch. It has all of my favorite design elements.
