Re-Visiting an Old Friend...
Yes, Sampler Game Board from The Drawn Thread is my old friend. Lelia and I started stitching it together on January 1, 2006. I originally planned to stitch it on 25ct Dublin (as called for in the design.) After stitching a fare amount of it, I made the decision in April of the same year to stitch it on a larger count fabric - so I started over! This time on 35 ct Ivory. I've stitched quite a bit on it since that time (as you can see) but grew tired of it and moved on to other projects. I pulled it out the other night and realized that I really don't have too much more to go - maybe three rows plus the rest of the border. I've stitched 5 or 6 new blocks since pulling it out on Sunday night and plan to keep going - maybe I could have this one finished by the end of the year? :)
I'm also still finishing Merry ornaments - these two are finished without the bells; I still need to add a hanger.
Thanks for stopping by!
