It is Monday and the bathrooms are clean. The walking is done. It was cold and blustery today and I didn't see anybody on the trail.
This is how far I am on the Sassenach Sampler.
I love the design of this sampler but it sure would be nice to have a complete chart. It is really hard to know if you are in the right place. It is really hard to match the pieces of the chart together. I admit I was a bit angry that the slope was not completely charted. "Just continue the pattern" is not good enough, we should have a chart of the whole slope. There should be a master chart of the whole sampler. I have no idea of how many more strawberries I need to stitch for the border. But enough complaining.
Things I am grateful for today: I can still walk outside. I am alive and able to stitch (and I happen to have enough stuff to stitch forever). I can get down on the floor and get up again without help. I am warm and dry and have electricity. I have kind friends. Oh, I wanted tell you about my friend Kim. She is making FlossTube videos under the name Stone House Stitcher.
