Here are a few notes on my changes in case you are interested. I got the iStitch program in the last year, and it really does make wording a whole lot easier. I changed the name to "An Autumn Welcome" and added a shortened verse in place of the "Stitched by Section". One of these days I'll use iStitch to design and stitch a full sized project, but now too many other things are on my plate.
Red House Sampler. I was looking on my walls for inspiration and found it just to the right of my stitching spot. Red House was my first project on linen even weave. I was shocked how see-through it was compared to the cotton even weave I was used to. I panicked a little but stitched those first few stitches with trepidation. Soon I had figured out how to be a sneaky stitcher and hide or work around threads that normally would have traveled. Everything shows under looser linen weaves.
What was I thinking?
Until next time count your Blessings--God's Gifts to you.
