Acorn Sampler


Acorn Sampler is back out again tonight. For a while tonight I was getting a bit skeptical that there was enough of the cream colored silk in the kit... those three bands so far took up almost a whole skein. Further inspection of the chart reveals that the fairly large group of quidlobet stitches in the bottom area is done with one strand of the silk, so I think it will actually work out OK ;-)

Stitched on today: Started a new CE exchange, stitched on SBEBB ABC Exchange, and Acorn Sampler **Mailed Spring Exchange to Myrna today
