I am so pleased with the progress I have made with the Learning Sampler this week. I have managed to complete parts 4, 5 and 6. They were all part done but still feels great to get some parts finished. Here's a picture of where I had got up to when I picked this up again.
The next photo is where I'm up to now and then there are a few close up pictures.
Part 4 - cross stitches and diamond eyelets
Part 5 - Smyrna Crosses and Double Leviathons
Part 6 - Letters F,G,H,I,J and K - cross stitches only
I received some new stash this week. The first package that arrived was from European Cross Stitch and contained the beads for the Chatelaine Seaside Mystery.
I can't wait to get to the point where I can start stitching them on. I'm very undecided at the moment as to whether to stitch them on as I go or to wait until the end. I've chatted about this with a couple of experienced Chatelaine stitchers and they both wait until the end so I think I will do the same but I can't wait to see what a difference they will make.
I am also saving up for a bead storage container after seeing Mrs Milkybar Kid talk about it on one of her floss tube videos.
I've purchased a couple of charts from KLT Charting.
Rotating back to Together Forever by Love Thy Thread now I going to stitch on it every other week until it's finished as I want to get it done as quickly as I can.
Keep stitching and smiling.
