This week’s progress. I guess it shows that I didn’t only work on this on Monday, eh? 😉 I got impatient and excited to finish page three.
Here’s a close-up of the backstitch flower row. Not my favorite row to stitch. Still, it’s pretty and the colors are so lovely and mesh so well with everything else.
I think this chain would have been fun to stitch in overdyed floss.
The lovely rice stitch checkerboard, wherein it really shows how much my dyelot varies from the model’s yelot. In the model the checkerboard is almost a rainbow of color. Definitely not the case here, and not something I could have achieved with the skein I purchased. It’s weird how the color scheme went so far astray between dyelots.
Ah, satin stitch leaves. I really like satin stitch. It’s so smooth and satiny. 😉
The full three pages. I love stitching this sampler ever so much. It’s a joyful experience.
