This and That

I have been in a stitching frenzy the past few days!!  I hadn’t worked on my Sampler Club Sampler since before I left for my trip and as I told you in a previous post I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do next.  Going to our Sampler Club meeting always inspires me to work on my sampler.  So yesterday I organized my stash and got to work on the next portion of my Sampler.

I am so exited because I can finally see it all coming together and an end is near.  It will be a bitter sweet moment when I finish this sampler. I have been working on it diligently for a year and it is to date the largest needlework project I have ever done not to mention the most challenging as there is no pattern and much of what I have done I have just learned in the past year. 

I also wanted to share with you that I think I have finally figured out what my green silk mystery thread is!  I love this thread and have used it throughout my sampler but have been referring to it as mystery thread, well I am pretty sure it is The Thread Gatherer Silk N’ Colors Marsh Grasses.  How appropriate is that name, considering how I used it to look like sea grass in one of my bands?

I didn’t take any pictures of my progress yet, hopefully tomorrow I can get some taken and loaded on my blog.  So I will leave you with a video of my favorite Downton Abbey character, since I am in Downton withdrawal waiting for season 3.
