I absolutely adore cross stitching. It is what I would chose to do any day of the week and twice on Sunday. This is my cross stitch journal.

Ann Hill Sampler
This is my start of one of my two new projects I am working on. It is the Ann Hill sampler from Just Crosstitch reproduced by Cathy Livingston. I am using 36 ct.. Dirty Linen Edinborough by Zweigart. Also using DMC floss. I haven't worked on it much, as I have been painting the basement, which seems like it is taking for ever. All the ceilings, all the walls, doors, moulding. Back to the sampler, if I had looked more carefully at the directions, instead of being drawn in by the picture and the colors, I might have waited a bit before starting this. It's full of Algerian stitches. Just like the Cochrane sampler. Ugg! Plus between the two blue borders is free hand embroidery of flowers and vines. I have put off tackling those, but know sooner or later I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and start those too. On a bright note, I received the Time and Season kit from Moira Blackburn, which is the sampler I'm going to donate to the charity auction next year.
