A while ago I fell in love with Russian Rooster but I really disliked the whole sampler. I decided to stitch just the roosters motif (would you agree that they are very lovely?) Well, so much for my executive decisions... after I finished roosters I looked again on the writing and, after all, I figured that I like the sayings - such a beautiful, conservative values! I've changed my mind and it will be the whole sampler. Thank goodness I'd start my project on a piece of fabric that is large enough for the whole sampler. The left edge could be a little bigger, is just about an inch there... but I'm pretty sure I can manage.
fabric: 36ct Smokey White linen
floss: Liberty from Weeks Dye Works (red) and DMC 3847)
So long my friends,
