Work In Progress: Embroidery Side-Project

I wanted to work on a larger embroidery sampler and decided to go with a 10 inch diameter hoop this time. It’s about triple the size of previous projects, and I’ve been working on this off and on since the fall.

The sampler has become a mishmash of textures and colours, and I sometimes love it, and sometimes hate it. I set it aside while I worked on the embroidered gift for my mom, and work on it about once of twice a week.

I’m hoping to finish it once I reach the borders of the embroidery hoop, but I’m not in a rush to get there. It’s nice to have a side-project with no timeframe or deadline.
