1905 Sampler Part Two Update

Part two of Simone de Jong of Atelier Soed Idee's 1905 Sampler was released today (my time) so I printed it out and went at it. I am a bit worried as I did not start the sampler in the correct spot and now I may not have enough fabric. Le sigh. I will worry about it when the time comes, however, I am probably going to have to tweak the design a bit. Of course, this also means that I will probably change the date and the initials on it :). 

Well, here is what I have so far:

Design: 1905 Sampler

Designer: Simone de Jong of Atelier Soed Idee

Fabric Used: Zweigart 36 count Edinburgh Linen in Antique White

Fiber Used: Caron Collection Waterlilies silk in Cherry Cordial 

Stitcher's Notes: Stitched one strand of Caron Collection Waterlilies silk in Cherry Cordial over two threads of 36 count Edinburgh Linen in Antique White.

Well, I am off for now. I need to clean up my stitching area and read before bed. Hope you all are having a fantastic weekend! :)


Respectfully submitted,

Nice work.

If you don't want to change it up, you can overlap two pieces of fabric and stitch through both to extend your working area when you get near the too short section. Good luck!
