One good thing about this frozen shoulder episode is that I am getting less sleep than normal - the pain usually wakes me up and then getting back to sleep is almost impossible.
This morning I retrieved another sampler from my UFO (Unfinished Object) sampler drawer. It is one that I had enjoyed working on sometime between 1998-2000 (will check my paperwork later) but then had put aside for some reason or the other.
So, here is where I had left off on my next sampler - it is "SH" 1683 reproduced by Margriet Hogue of The Essamplaire. This is about one third of the sampler and this part is mostly Holbein stitch or running stitches usually called Blackwork. I had stitched all the bands reversibly... figuring out the pathways to be able to do this is what I really find intriguing in this technique.
