My Progress on Elizabeth J. M. Mears Sampler


I've enjoyed stitching on Elizabeth. I haven't made too much progress, but at least I can see how all the colors are melding together!


I'm stitching on 36 count, rather than 32 count that is called for on the pattern. I'm stitching on Lakeside Linen Vintage Examplar with the called for Needlepoint Inc. Silks:) Just lovely.


I understand Ellen Chester of With My Needle is doing this sampler as one of her Stitch-a-Longs for 2011. Great choice, Ellen!


Happy Stitches,


Holly

Holly, I will look forward to seeing your progress. It's a beautiful design and you're off to a great start!

For shame, Holly. You have lead me astray. I have just finished pulling the threads (only need to buy a couple). Next, I need to cut the linen...mine is 32-count Examplar.

You are making great progress so far.

Elizabeth J.M.M. is at my LNS, awaiting pickup. I don't think I'll put it in my huge rotation yet, but I am really enjoying watching your progress.
