Sarah Williams was sitting right by my chair. All I needed to do was pick her up. The needle was even threaded.
I finished the thing that looks like a quilt or a Granny square, then worked on the border a little more before doing any of the large motifs in the bottom third of the sampler. Then I decided to go ahead and get all the border finished. I have all the slimy green stitched and I've started on the strawberries. Next I want to do the attribution at the bottom of the sampler, mainly because that involves letters and cross stitch over one thread. That will just leave the fun stuff--at least, at the moment, I think it will be the fun stuff. There's a lot of filling in with a giant lady on one side and a huge house in the middle that must be constructed and roofed.
I need to find something good to marathon on TV this week-end.
