Work in Progress

I have many WIP's but when you attempt a sampler this size, one's interest can wane after a period of time.
I always come back to them though and this one is no exception , I am so close to finishing . I have to say though that it is very taxing on the eyes as a lot of the thread colours are so close to the linen colour . I am only using 1 strand of thread as I am stitching this on 36 count linen. The chart is one from an old Antique Sampler and Needlework magazine. I think I commenced this sampler back in 2005, so yes it is time to complete it.
