Although I have been working on The Knox Family Sampler exclusively, I don't feel like I have made good progress. I think this is the longest it has ever taken for me to complete a sampler.
I finally finished the large letters. The filigree work took quite a while.
Between stitching the letters, I tried to extend the borders a bit. Next, I started on the houses. The first house was brick. There is a straight stitch around each brick which did slow things down.
The next house was smaller and pink. The stitching was quicker on this one.
Then I started on the first tree. I am currently filling in the foliage on this one. The stitch used is a wheat-ear stitch.
This is where I left off. It Here is a photo of the whole sampler where I left off.
It does seem as if this one has taken a very long time, but I am hoping to finish it up soon now.
