Sampler and Antique Quarterly Magazine 2012 Sampler Update

Well, I picked this back up again. It seems to be my yo-yo project. I will just keep plodding along and it will get done. I last told you about it in November.  In 2012 the Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly Magazine (sure sad to see that one go) had a year long project that I fell in love with and had todo. It is rather large and so I work on it off and on. 

The design size is approx. 25 1/2" long by 10 1/4" wide. The fabric is 30 count linen cut to 32"x 17" It is designed by Susan Haverson of Cross Stitch It and was inspired by 17th Century English band samplers, adapted using her colors, designs etc. It done entirely with DMC floss.

Originally I had it on scroll bars, but that was when we had Miss Maddie, a 60 lb. Labrador that stayed on the floor. Now we have Li'l Coco, a 16 lb. mixed breed that is allowed on the sofa. She sets herself against my leg or my hubby's leg (we are her people pillows). Well when she was against my leg my scroll frame hit her in the head if I turned if over to start or end thread. So, I took if off and I am doing it in hand now. I am almost done with part 2 of 3. 

That is about all for now!
