Slow Sunday Stitching

 My Love Is Patient Sampler is getting close to the finish line. I’m ready to start section 29. After that comes the last section consisting of cut work which is challenging but fun. Before I can declare it done though, I have to add all the beads. I decided on this one to do the beading all at the same time at the end. The beads are tiny and fiddly and are difficult to get out of their little bag and then back into it again without losing some of them. This way I can put them all into a bowl and go fishing for them all at once. Plus the beads make it difficult to place the hoop. I also have to place our anniversary date into the box.

I’m looking forward to finishing this one so I can move onto the next. I have the threads for 3 more of the Victoria Samplers here waiting to start.

  1. Your Love is Patient Sampler is truly beautiful. To look at it makes me feel calm and restful. Not long to go now till the finishing line. Good thinking to wait until the end to stitch the beads on.

  2. Beautiful stitching! Thanks for sharing and hope you have a great week!

  3. So beautiful...sure to be an heirloom!

  4. This sampler is so pretty. I have never stitched a piece with beading before and wondered if stitchers bead as they go or wait to the end. Thank you for sharing.

  5. This is so beautiful again, lovely stitches.


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
