I've started on my buttonhole stitch sampler for Take a Stitch Tuesdays . I decided to be a little bit more freeform this time around, trying to explore my boundaries somewhat. In between blowing my nose and trying to stay warm, here's my progress:
I like the graphic shapes that are appearing and plan to continue in this way till the sampler is full. These are 5"x7" (about 13cm x 18cm) sizes and will work well in the scrapbook I'll be using to hold all the stitches I play with this year during TAST.
Here's a photo of the scrapbook. It holds 8"x8" (about 20cm square) sheets and I found it at Target (I love Target!) and then bought some extra sheets to add to it.
Here is the cover page so when somebody stumbles across this worn little book in a 100 years they will know who did it, when and the genius behind it (that would be Sharon).
These are the inner pages... I plan on putting my sampler on the right hand side, then printing pictures of specific stitches that I fall in love with from the needleworkers involved in the challenge on the left side so I can refer to them. I think it should work well.
Since my samplers will of course be fairly thick I may have to go to a second scrapbook but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
In other news... the cold is almost gone; however, I broke a tooth last night. Sheesh!
