More of the same


Believe me, I am working on this as much as I have time for. It may not appear to have changed much since the last post. I've finished the gigantic carnations and some of the area around them. The motifs are spaced close together, and there are a lot of them. When it's finished, it will be a full-bodied sampler. If you are even thinking about doing this one, I'd say go for it. I absolutely love it, and I'm sure it's going to be an all-time favorite stitch of mine.
If my repetitive progress report has you bored, check this out. You'll never believe who came by for a visit this weekend. Like I said on my other blog, I'm kind of creeped out because we've heard of attacks on small dogs. Can you imagine how awful that would be?

Beautiful bird, but how scary! Your sampler is beautiful. Your posts are not repetitive at all - I can see progress with each post! I am so loving this sampler and I am going to order it when I have a chance. I know I'll want to stitch it though and I'm just trying to be good and stick with what I'm suppose to be stitching!

I love seeing and reading your progress reports. They have inspired me to get this sampler while still available and add it to my list and stash. I have an afinity for samplers that are done by Rebecca's. Keep the updates coming. Can't wait to see what you pick out for a frame.

Gorgeous! I am so enjoying watching your progress on this piece.

And you are a bad influence, I have been looking at your Picasa album and I have a list of samplers I want to order :-).

Such gorgeous work! I'm in awe over it and can't wait to see it complete.

I think you've made lots of progress. You always do! You stitch big wonderful samplers and they are not easy-peasy! I think this one is looking great.

That owl does look spooky...

That owl is definitely a bit scary. I actually heard an owl hooting right outside our house the other night -- gave me the creeps. Hope Ruby and Scarlett stay safe!

As for that sampler -- you're doing it again!!! I agree with Katrina, you're way too inspirational for my pocketbook! lol! I may have to go get this one too! Marsha will be wondering about all the orders. :D (Are you using NPI??)

This is a very intensive sampler with so much going on.

I love looking at you sampler progress as I can live vicariously through your work. I know if I started a sampler like this, it would never get done.

OK... now you've done it again... this beautiful sampler has just be added to my 'must stitch' list.

TFS!!!
