I have been making new starts even if I haven't made it here to share them with you. On Saturday, I started "October Sampler" which was in Just Cross Stitch as part of a series of birthday samplers that ran in 1995. (Talk about procrastinating!) I remember making one for my aunt (December) and my sister (February) around the time they came out. I am using all the prescribed materials. Like the Thistle that I did last year, this one has lots of specialty stitches and uses flower thread. It's quite enjoyable, and I was able to complete half of it while snuggled on the couch with the dude and the dog.
On Sunday, I started Winter Row, by Bent Creek. I am using Amsterdam Blue Belfast linen in place of the called for R&R American Blend. I am using the called for colors. As you can see, I spent the majority of my time on the cards.
I made another start tonight, but you'll just have to visit to see what I've been up to.
