Gentle Friends..... after I got to feeling better I picked up my stitching where I left off and....
... so I finished up the rest of border and then thought about how I was going to go about stitching the rest of the sampler. Since this is such a large piece and I do not like griding or stitching within grid threads I needed to have some sort of structure to stitch from. The banner that runs across the upper middle seemed like a good place to stitch a jumping off point. As I stitched through the words I modified some of the letters with extra stitches - I like it better. Next up I think I'll stitch in the Tree of Knowledge in the lower half that will section off the bottom.
There you go sports fans, thanks again for stopping by do stop again!!
