Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thank you so much for all the kind comments about my post yesterday. "Harvest Blessing" was a fun sampler to stitch - and I have a few more Pocketbook Needlebook newsletters so there will be more of these little samplers in the future.
I got the letter "B" stitched up and started on "C" - these letters really do stitch up very fast.
Here is a snap..

Here's a thought about this sampler that has been working in my brain......usually when an alphabet sampler has images along with the letters - typically the image begins with the corresponding letter, but with this sampler I think that the images are just Christmas/Holiday/Winter things that have nothing to do with the letter. I realize this is a French chart and the french words are different than the English words - but my French is good enough to sort out what the translation could be and I don't see any correlation. Not that it matters - just a thought. Any other thoughts out there readers????
I am really not liking the way the flash makes the stitching look so sparse - I am doing this 1 over 2 on 36ct and the coverage looks fine to me - except when I see a snap - then the linen seems to just shine through - oh well, IRL it doesn't look so sparse.
There you go sports fans. Thanks again for stopping by and leaving a comment!! Until tomorrow....
