A Little Stitchin'

Gentle Friends, a little snap of the most current stitching on "Sojourner".....

... I had to convert the silks for the tree from the called for silks which were far to close in colour to give much distinction of the three parts.  So I ended up stitching the different sections a couple of times each until I came up with a combination that I liked.  I also converted the silks for the deer from the called for silk to a colour combination I like much better.

I love the colours you chose for the tree, the light green especially. This is such a beautiful sampler and I'm enjoying watching it grow.

It's just beautiful! I had to change so many colors on the large piece I am stitching. It's a bit tricky. Your choices look great.

Edgar, I had to re design a whole section on a sampler I was working on due to a mistake in my count. But as Bob Ross used to say there are no mistakes just happy accidents. I do realize that most people who do not do needlework would never see the mistake but I would see it each time I looked at it so I just changed the pattern. Your sampler is beautiful and I look forward to seeing the finished product.
