This is the start of Mystery Sampler, Part 1, from The Gift of Stitching, January Issue. It's an 18th Century Band Sampler by Long Dog Samplers. I am stitching it on the recommended linen 28 count, with all the colors recommended. I will tell you, I was very nervous about stitching on the linen, because I haven't done very well with the Aida cloth. I don't have much time to practice and I do okay, but I can see where I need lots of improvement! But, I LOVE stitching on the linen! It's been very smooth and easy, and my work looks a lot better on the linen than on any Aida I have ever used. I am hooked! So far (which isn't far at all) I love this! I hope I can get enough stitching done on this before the next installment comes out. I did just start it yesterday and that was setting up the linen to be stitched and getting out all the floss, etc. I couldn't wait to get home from work to work on it!
