Reading your posts and studying the projects everyone is working on tempted me terribly to just dive in a try my first sampler. I picked Rebecca Robinson. It just looked so sweet with all the animals and cute couple. The border of honeysuckle looked pretty and like it would be fun to stitch. Hopefully, it will be as enjoyable as it looks online.
I live in Missouri, have a wonderful husband, and two boys (8 and 5 years old) who keep me on the move all the time. Our dogs, a Kerry Blue Terrier and a Soft Coated Wheaten are adored members of our little family and are at my feet and by my side as I type.
I am not experienced at stitching or any creative or crafty pursuits, but I have always admired those who are. I have done a couple of counted cross stitch projects and a few needlepoint projects on painted canvases. Trying out different stitches was my favorite part and quite interesting. I even bought two books, Cross Stitchers Bible (Jane Greenoff) and The Needlepoint Book (Jo Ippolito Christensen). No, I haven't finished either one. So you are now sure I am a beginner and you are so right! :-)
My hope is to complete something I will not be embarrassed of and learn a lot from all of you along the way.
Due to an illness in the family, I also purchased a miniature sampler My Beloved to have a project that would be easily portable and hopefully not too complicated to pick up and put down repeatedly.
I am especially happy to tell you a long hard day was lightened by arriving home and finding my order from the Scarlet Letter had arrived!! It will be a great day if I can get started tomorrow, but if not tomorrow a start any day will be quite exciting!
