Sampler finished!

The sampler is finished and I'm loving it!  Oops, just noticed that I failed to put my name and date on it, I'll add that later.  I used the cotton backing as the front border and I like the way it looks.  Had a great time stitching this and I'll be doing more embroidery soon I'm sure.

and again....
my Geeky self loves the back too!

Sampler progress

I've been stitching along and enjoying re-discovering embroidery.  Here's a WIP shot:

And here's the back!  I'm using a piece of cotton fabric as a stabilizer and fun backside to the piece.
Also, YES!  I do knot my embroidery.  :)

New Blog!

Testing the Blogger platform for a new blog.  I gave up my paid domain so now I'm on the lookout for a new, free blog space.

The Crafty ADD has struck and I've started an embroidery sampler!  I haven't embroidered in years and years.  This lovely sampler is from Dropcloth Samplers.  I have a large assortment of DMC embroidery floss left over from my counted cross stitch days, so I'm picking out colors at random and re-acquainting myself with the different embroidery stitches.  FUN!
