Mary's Sampler II

My last stitching finish for 2013 was Mary's Sampler 11, a free mystery design offered by Paulette of Plum Street Samplers over a series of Sundays.

I was a bit late getting it underway, it was already up to week 6 when I decided to make a start.


I chose 32 count black linen and although at times it was tricky to see the right holes, lol, and not so easy to get a good photo either, I think the colours just pop on the black, especially the green.

It looks lovely on black. The last time I tried to stitch on black fabric I couldn't see to stitch, so won't be trying that again.

You're right, the colours look fantastic on the black.
Have you tried putting a white cloth on your lap while sewing on dark colours? That works for me.

So pretty on the black, Katrina! If I ever find time to stitch it, I'll probably use that or a dark blue, too!

OMG, it looks so good on the black! I tried to find dark fabric for mine but everyone seemed to be out of it. Naturally I found some just last week.
You've done a fabulous job on this Katrina!
