31 Days and Counting...

31 days until Stitchville's Spring Fling! I have another Drawn Thread finish to share with you.

This is the Sampler Game Board....




I started this piece in 2005. After stitching on it for awhile I decided to switch out my linen, from 25 count to 36 count. I also stitched all the motifs in the same direction. It took me a long time to finish this one. I would lose interest in it for awhile and then I would come back to it. Finally finished it in 2011. It's one of my favorite Drawn Thread finishes!

Such a lovely piece! I have this one in the stash but haven't started it yet. Good idea to turn all the motifs in the same direction!! Laura

Its wonderful. I have the Monopoly board sitting there half stitched. Maybe I'll drag it out before XMas and finish it too.

I stitched this a few years ago too and it's one of my favorite pieces.

This is gorgeous!!!!!
To tell you the truth, this is one of the first charts I bought, but haven't even started yet. Seeing this makes me want to pull it out again.
Thanks for sharing~
