Don't faint...........but I finished something!

Really!! I did-and what is more I am posting about it. It's "The Sampler Sampler"by Brightneedle-stitched over one on 32ct lugana (what was I thinking?). There are 28 different colours (mostly Anchor) and the stitch count is 105 square. There's a lot of work in that tiny piece (it's about 8 cm square) but it looks lovely and I'm happy with it. I started this mumble years ago-well before I contemplated stitching a HAED (which are usually stitched over one and are huge).

We all survived the holidays-more about them another post as I have to go to the post office and school shortly, but one of the major things that happened here was that it rained. And rained. For a few days even. We ended up with about 100mm or 4 inches in the old measurements. There are more showers forecast for later this week so it's looking good. I will have to look up what rain we've had in the last year, but it's not been good.

Dear Leonie, I am sitting down and having a cup of tea to ward off any possible fainting!! Thank you for leaving a comment and the Do Not Call information, I really appreciate your de-lurking!!! I plan to register ASAP. What beautiful cross stiching you do, so fine and delicate!! I am so glad you have had rain, we are having our first proper rain since I don;t know when!! It rained all yesterday and it is still raining today. It's wonderful isn't it!!

Leonie that looks wonderful. I live in south western NSW and we got about an inch of much needed rain last week end. We need so much more though.

Your sampler looks brilliant! I have several big cross-stitch projects sitting in a box under my bed which I started 12 years ago, and are only about 2/3 done 0_o

Thanks for commenting on my Blog, and the Knit Picks shop tip :)
