I am thrilled to have completed my first sampler - Sally Morse. I have so enjoyed stitching her. I used two threads for the border and one thread for the inside. I also put my initials and the year under Salley's name in place of ADGED 11. As I had used Aida the satin stitch for flowers didn't look right and so I cross stitched them. There should be some vertical flowers but I had gone wrong with counting somewhere and there was no room to put them in. I have found stitching to be very therapeutic and relaxing but must learn to keep my threads in order!
