After spending a week ripping out 3 times a dove on Country Life, I came to the realization that my cataracts were causing the problem. I decided that I could no longer work on higher count linen for the time being. I found on SL Harriet Brouard and she was stitched on 30 ct. I always thought this was a pretty sampler. I had tried different size magnifying glasses and they didn't work so I bought a magnifying floor lamp and this has been a big help. I'm back to stitching only for shorter periods.
Even though this past year I didn't complete a sampler, I have enjoyed so much this blog and seeing what other people are doing. You think you have seen and recognize all of SL charts, one always shows up that you don't recognize.
Wishing everyone happy, healthy stitching 2014.
