As expected, I did finish my canvaswork sampler while I was in Amsterdam (pinned here, ready to be blocked) – I think crewel is definitely the style I want to keep exploring, but this canvaswork is such fantastic fun!
It’s so instant-gratification – I’m sure every other sampler I’ve done so far took at least twice as long as this one. And I enjoyed it so much more, just relaxing, stitchy fun.
I think I want to use this cream-and-gray stitch in something large, just as a total all-over pattern. In these exact colors, it’s so delicious!
Sorry I didn’t offer much guidance on this sampler, if you’ve been stitching along at all. The truth is, you really don’t need any more than I linked to earlier. It’s just too simple to need more!
So. Time for June’s Sampler, #9. The thing is … I got nuthin’. No ideas. No inspiration at all. I mean, I have a list of potential styles to ‘sample’, and I want to try them all, but … none of them are grabbing me right now. And everything on that list needs a little more research than I have time for, given that it’s the 2nd of June already and I haven’t started. Any ideas??
(P.S. – I’m working on a new blog design and it’s eating up up all of my blogging time. Posting will be a little light for a while, but I promise, I’m not gone. And if you miss me, you can always find me at Twitter and Instagram!)
