It was offered to me by Jacqueline from Needleprint and I think it is a wonderful monochrome sampler from Ackworth School.
I am using rustic looking (not so 'greeny' as the photo shows) linen from Zweigart, 30 count. It is the highest count I feel comfortable working with, despite the glasses and a powerful magnifying lamp: sweet fifties!!! I'm stitching 2 over 2.
I've chosen Hand Dyed Fibers from Vikki Clayton (my favourite!). I will be using 2 colours: Penny Wort 3449, which is the one you can see on the photo and Penny Wort 3447, which is the conversion of the DMC recommended. As I already had the 3449, I started with it and now I am anxiously waiting for the post to bring me the other one. It was posted 2 weeks ago, but it seems that the cross of the Atlantic is taking some time.
I'll be posting my progress and I would love to have your comments on it.
Have a fabulous weekend and take some time to stitch - I will!
