Last week I thought my little sampler from Cross Stitch Antique Style Samplers (June Greenoff 2005) would be done by today. Not quite. I had a work trip to New York City in the middle of the week, which slowed my stitching. Even so, just working in the evenings while we watched tv or my husband read to me I've almost finished the cross stitching. One little bird is left to stitch, then I can do the drawn work. It is pretty simple hem, but I've just never done drawn work before so I don't want to rush through it. After that I'll mount the piece over colored fabric--maybe green so that I can use this as a Christmas decoration. What do you think?
