This little sampler by Charland has seen more frogging than stitching. First of all, the ribbon embroidery wasn't making me happy - it just wasn't neat enough. I suppose I was expecting too much for a first attempt ... and then I ran out of the gold metallic, and coldn't get more, so that got frogged and is being reworked in new gold ... and don't get me started on the Queen Stitches ...
So, let's sit in judgement:
- It's a Christmas design but doesn't look overly Christmassy.
- Love the fabric
- Will learn a new technique
- Frustrating to work some of the stitches
- Won't fit in with my general Christmas style
So - Finish or Fling?
Verdict: Finish. Even if it kills me. It will be character forming.
