Labor Day Quaker Sampler Progress

Managed to get some stitchy time in for the last two days and have made some headway on A Quaker Alphabet Sampler. I am not sure if I like the DMC 3866 that I've used, however, in some odd way, it seems to work. I am seriously considering adding my initials and the year to the piece and 'sign' it that way. I don't normally sign my work, as I think it detracts from the stitching, and IMO, since I spend so much time stitching, I don't really want anything to draw your eye away from the piece. YMMV, however. :)

At any rate, here is a picture of my two days work, with the related stitchy notes! :)

Design: A Quaker Alphabet Sampler

Designer: Carriage House Samplings

Fabric: 28 count Monaco fabric in Majesty by Fleur de Luce Hand Dyeds

Floss: Threadworx 1082 Cabbage and DMC 3866

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! :)
