26 Days

Do you remember the linen and Weeks Dye Works flosses I showed you awhile back?

Well, the sampler I was planning is finished! I am not going to officially announce the pattern until tomorrow or the next day, because I still need to polish up the cover and chart.

What I will share with you today is the little experiment that went along with this sampler. In an attempt to track my progress and possibly make me feel like I accomplished something each day, I took a daily photo of the sampler.

When all was said and done, I was pleasantly surprised to realize that I started and finished this piece in just 26 days...

Some days, barely a stitch was placed, while other days I zoomed ahead. I'm telling you, if you have a digital camera, and are a one-project-at-a-time girl like me, you really should try doing the same thing.

And now... stay tuned for the official release of my Rachael Holmes sampler. Feel free to contact me if you wish to pre-order. There won't be any special discount, but you will be able to say that you were one of the first to receive the chart.

Hi Beth,
I was happy to see your patterns at my local needlework shop this afternoon. Looking forward to your next sampler - if only the fingers could stitch faster. LOL

I really like this sampler a lot. It's so different in the way it's put together. Dang, another to add to the stash and I still haven't started With One Accord!!

WOW! These progress photos are stunning! I love the collage effect too.
