I am stitching the initials in white DMC Satin Thread - I don't want the initials to be too obvious, but I still want them to be there. I hope to make good progress on this piece over the next couple of days, since it is still very cold and raining most of the time - and they say we have another cold front on the way for tomorrow!
I completed this Jane Austen sampler recently. It is in the March 2007 issue of The Gift Of Stitching online magazine. I love this magazine, since it can be downloaded so easily and contains a great selection of samplers - it is difficult to find stitching magazines over here. I stitched it on cream Linda in DMC cotton. The original design had a different motif on the right hand side of the house, but I found it too 'heavy', so I changed it to a small crown. That's it for now - time for a hot cup of tea!
