Family Reunion Sampler


A week or two ago, I started a new project... and it has really gotten me back into stitching again! Whew! I decided to stitch Family Reunion by Rosewood Manor. This is not a good photo - I took it outdoors with my iPhone... not great. I am stitching it on Lakeside Linens 40 ct Maritime White linen with the called for DMC.... now the challenge is how to fit in all of Mike's ginormous family onto the sampler... thankfully, in this instance, my family is very small, so we will fit... I managed to stitch in a few initials as I have been stitching along. I think I am going to need an Excel spreadsheet to figure out where to fit everyone. I am so grateful to Facebook for this. Facebook has put me in touch with many of Mike's relatives and they were all quick to give me the info I needed for the sampler :-)

Currently Stitching: two gifts, Family Reunion and CaHOHR
