Plans

Well, I have been thinking ...
Last night, I went and looked at my started sampler projects and some of the projects I had moved up to start in the near future.

And today had  some time to go through most of my SANQ magazines ...also looked through just one drawer of sampler charts.

This is my plan as far as samplers are concerned ... 
I will start two samplers on my birthday in October and then I plan to continue with only two samplers each month, I am allocating 20 hours for samplers each month ... This will give me the chance to work on them alongside all my other projects.

I am also formulating a two pronged  'plan of attack' regarding my entire collection of things relating to needlework ... It is time to sell the things I know I will never need or use or work on... 
AND I am not buying anything else for a very long time....

Needlework books may be the only exception...

Loara Standish continued

The subtlety of design is really delightful to observe on this sampler.  Figuring out the reversible pathways for the flowers and leaves was also fun.  Truly enjoying stitching the 'oldest' sampler known to exist in America.
