(Still) In The Frame


Those readers who have followed my blog(s) for a while may recall my coastal cross stitch sampler, which I started in 2008.  In all that time, it has been on the frame and has moved up and down as I worked my way around this large sampler.


With full-time work commitments, there were long periods when I left this piece untouched and then I would pull it out and work a little.  I could spend hours working on it and only complete a tiny portion of the design.


Finding myself with time on my hands this summer and the weather being far too hot for strenuous activity, I decided to set myself a challenge.  I started working on my sampler on a regular basis in early July, with the goal of completing it during the course of the summer.
