Here we go, into the sampler unknown!
I received the instruction book and couldn't wait to get started! The book is terrific, with great diagrams and photos of everything. It will be a wonderful resource to have.
I have completed 2 squares in the center section. The one on the right was supposed to have some pulled work, but I don't like to do pulled work. So I just stitched the little squares without pulling, and then put a bead in each one. I like it!
Here's another view of that square. That detail photo is more accurate for color. It is aquamarina canvas and DMC 959.
