In any case, this simple cross stitch sampler has proven to be a good choice for summer stitching - it is a good way to just 'cruise' and allow the mind to just plan and think through priorities regarding future needlework projects. I was initially planning to work this sampler systematically but that became a bit too boring at times because of the repetition of motifs (slight differences) since it is a fairly symmetrical sampler, so I decided to establish the perimeters and some other areas and just be a bit free with my approach.... enjoying the 'freedom' of this approach for the moment!
