I haven't worked on a sampler since I went to the retreat in February, so I decided to pull Frances Burwell out of her pillowcase.
And then I remembered why I hadn't worked on this since.
The next thing to do was an alphabet. In reversible cross. And I don't like stitching letters. I have no idea why I don't like to stitch letters, but I don't. But the next thing to do if I'm ever to finish stitching the sampler is to work the alphabet, so I got it started.
There is also a lower-case alphabet after the upper case alphabet is finished. And then there are numbers.
I don't like stitching numbers any more than I like to stitch letters, but I will struggle through so I can get to the fun stuff.
And if this is the worst struggle I have to overcome, I lead a charmed life.
