I can't believe that I was able to finish this in time. I started it at the beginning of the month, but have been really busy. I think my almost-10 month old is about to cut his first tooth, because he has been CRANKY the last two days. Glad I actually finished it.
I have been embroidering for over 20 year, but have never been very adventurous with my stitches. This challenge was a good chance for me tp try some new stitches. I actually ended up stitching more than what ended up in the finished hoop, but oh well. Stitches used were chain (new), herringbone (new), cross stitch (old), back stitch (old), gern stitch (new), sheaf stitch (new), feather stitch (new), running stitch (old), blanket stitch (old, but a variation that is new to me. I chose to do a sampler in rainbow colors because I love rainbows. I also had a REALLY hard time choosing one color, so my solution to that problem.is almost always RAINBOW.
Sorry about the crappy cell phone pics, but I will likely take nicer ones for my blog, so I should be able to replace 'em tomorrow.
