I have completed my first stitching project for 2009. It is the Ohio sampler I was working on since this past autumn. I will not be sharing a photo of this finished piece as I have deleted all entries pertaining to the MB circa 1810 sampler I was working on after receiving an email from the designer late last night, who I do not know, sharing her opinion about my changing a color in the design. This was done not to offend but because the color was not visible on the linen. I am sorry that I fell I can no longer share the photos with my readers. I am however listing it in my blog sideline list as I enjoy looking back at what I have completed at the end of each year.
Instead, I thought I would show an old photo from an entry back in 2006. This sweet little chart was sent to me complete with thread by a dear online friend Joanne. I stitched it up into a pinkeep which is currently standing under my winter tree.
Edit note: Thanks for your supportive and kind remarks. She did thank me for buying her design but I felt uncomfortable sharing any photos after her correcting comments about the thread color. I feel handworkers for the most part have gracious and caring hearts. So that is what I am trying to be after feeling like a child being corrected when I received this email but feel that having photos of it on my blog is free advertising.
