Red is the Rose


Good morning everyone!~~ I was the lucky recipient of the new sampler chart Red is the Rose,by Sherri Hager of The Berri Patch last week!~ (Go check out her etsy!) I wanted to show you this pretty band sampler and the progress I have made on it... I am using 32ct linen (the closest shade I had to the specified mushroom lugana) and the dmc flosses it called for...I must admit I was surprised when I gathered my dmc to see the pink and turquoise shades...but now that I am into the piece I see how Sherri's selection of colors is perfect!~ I willpost a little more in the next few days.....If you are looking for a fun and quick stitch, this sampler is for you!~ Happy stitching everyone!~ Faye
