Teeny Tiny Progress

I've been stitching but the going is slow.
I calculate that once I finish the numbers out to under the letter "M" as well as the red band under them, I will be 1/12 complete!  Next up I will continue the top border and the rest of the alphabet as my focus area.  Oh joy, more four-sided stitching.  I might have to relook at the pattern to see if there is more further down the sampler.
The other gals stitching along with this have lamented about the four-sided stitch taking so long.......What?   A four-sided stitch is simple.  I didn't get it until I started doing the four-sided stitch.   The stitch in itself is not difficult however, what was Grace thinking with soooooo much four-sided stitching!
I am pleased so far.   I think it will be neat to photograph all the samplers together when all seven of us are completed.   Sorry girls, but at this rate, it won't be until next summer for me!

It's looking great so far! What is the finished size going to be in cm or inches? It looks like it will be huge! :)

Looking great! I love four sided stitch but yes, it goes slooooow! Also love your Jeanette Douglas piece. I hope you don't mind a question. I'm curious about the thread park you have- the small piece with the threaded needles by their symbols. Where did you find it? Thanks for any info. Nancy in NY hedghogmom@aol.com

I guess you will have to wait longer than next summer for all seven for the picture as I haven't even started mine yet or the Santa either that we are doing together. I guess I better get stitching instead of swimming. Diane from TN

Those four-sided stitches ar probably why it took me five years to finish this sampler. And I wasn't a fan of changing colors for every other letter. But this is one of my favorite pieces now that it's on my wall.
