Never Ending Sampler Stitch Along....a beginning.

I decided to join in with the "Never Ending Sampler" that Pam Kellogg has started on her blog and Facebook page.

I made a mistake in band 6 but I left it. I didn't notice until I was half way through band 7. Those flowers in band 6...arrgh. I picked out more than I stitched...LOL So needless to say there was no way I was going to pick it out again.

I'm really enjoying doing this sampler though. Some bands are easy and some not so much. A good challenge.  There are lots of possible seam treatments for Crazy Quilting as well.

This is my progress so far.....

I've been using variegated threads for most of it as I seem to have a collection of them. A couple are so old they are J & P Coats. That used to be the only brand of basic embroidery thread that was sold locally now it's DMC thread. This is also a perfect opportunity to try to use up as many of the small remnants I have of needlepoint canvas.

The light today isn't very good to take pics. My canvas it a blue gray so that doesn't help much either:)



The thread that I used in the last line barely shows against the canvas as it's very pale shades of green and turquoise so I may unpick it and use a darker colour.

Take care:)

FWIW...I didn't see the "error."

I'm loving the variegated thread, as well. It's a beautiful sampler.

Love the variegated threads. I thought that was cross stitch not needlepoint canvas.

This is looking really pretty. I started the same SAL and undid my chosen colours twice, I like the mixture of stitches but hate having to decide on each colour band.
