Sampler updates

The Olympics is not conducive to model stitching..
a lot of frogging happens during olympics as ones focus is constantly diverted to cheering various athletes/teams on
So i stitched non essential stuff… over the last 2 weeks..
which was also good timing as i had a wicked cold again… and i also find colds not good for model stitching as again lots of frogging can happen then too..
so below are updates of various samplers.. there would be a lot more of the Austrian Spot Sampler done .. if i had not… FROGGED so much… lol

so picture number one is Romy’s Austrian Spot sampler ( see prvious posts for purchase details) sttiched 1×2 on 50 count using a mystery spool of HDF silk which turned outto be a Rose of Attar combo, and the Rose of Attar series of silks for the smaller spot motifs

next up is Heritage de lettres , an AMAP chart
it is being stitched 1×1 with assorted HDF silks on Vikki Clayton’s New Linen which is a 35 ct and a very nice 35 ct too i might add, you can get it HERE i am using the undyed linen, i really like the way it has been stitching up below  it is a close up of one of the letters so you can see how it looks stitched
