Map sampler progress – and a winner!

MK Map Sampler - WIP

Isn’t it funny how sometimes you avoid a project for months and then when you finally pick it up, you love it? I actually stayed up too late last night stitching the area above – this one was really fun, and I was really glad I picked a large area for it. (I’m even secretly a little glad I didn’t finish it, so there’s still some more of that stitch to do tonight!)

This section, on the other hand, was a bit of a pain in the ass. It seems like it’d be so simple and mild-mannered, but it got all fussy and the spacing went all wonky if even one tiny stitch was slightly out of place. Arg. But it does look nice in the end, so I forgive it.

Stitch, stitch, stitch! I’ll just keep stitching these and showing them to you until you can’t stand it anymore and beg for me to stop!

Oh, but wait, of course that’s not it! We have a winner to pick! Mr Random Generator, can we have a drumroll please …
