I have finally been able to get some work done on this sampler. We have had such a long winter, and even today – April 27 – we still have snow. But the last few days have actually seen some sun, and it has made working on this project easier. The white stitches on the beige fabric were really testing my eyesight in the dark days we had previously. I still have not figured out what name I will put on the sampler, so I have started working up from the center and I will leave the bottom portion with the name for last.
