Tonight I wanted to work on something that required nothing more than the ability to count fairly accurately and to stitch neatly.
I didn't want anything that required knowing how to execute 17th century embroidery techniques, or to wield a sharp needle, or to think about how to engineer a finish.
I just wanted to stitch.
This sampler has been aging in my stash for about twenty years. I am embarrassed to say it is not alone.
It has a very sweet strawberry border, and that's what I'm working on.
It is very soothing to stitch.
I may stick with it for a day or two.
