Country Life start

I have just started sewing Country Life Sampler - I had originally thought that my eyes were not up to sewing this on 35 count, but thanks to Nicola I have been persuaded otherwise! - and I am surprised just how good this count of fabric is to sew - and also the silk threads, they are just so beautiful.  Just a start on the border, but hope to show more progress very soon!
I really enjoy seeing everyone's progress, and there have been some beautiful inspirational finishes!
Thank you Nicola - for your encouragement, your enthusiasm and for having this wonderful idea in the first place!
I am off up to Nottingham to spend some time with my dear old Mum, so time to sew whilst enjoying the tennis at Wimbledon next week!
I hope you all have a great weekend.

I fell in love with this sampler (before I knew it was a SL sampler) after seeing it posted on a blog. That was some time ago, and it still is a favorite of mine.
Congratulations on your start. I, too, find the SLY stitchers to be such a warm, encouraging, and helpful group of people.
Good luck, Angie ... enjoy this lovely sampler!

Hi Angie,
You'll enjoy stitching CL. I'm also stitching it in the Nicola Scarlet Letter Year. Some ladies in my guild have completed it and it is beautiful.
