Now that I've got my sampler off of the scroll rods I'm having a great time stitching away every evening. Yesterday I got our name charted, and today I'm going to work on charting out tne door with a slight change. What's the change? You'll have to wait until I get it stitched to see!

It is breaking my heart--so much time wasted. But today I tool my original Family Sampler off of the scroll rods in order to start the project over on different fabric.
I love the fabric I've been using--an incredibly fine tissue weight 49 count linen--but it is just too hard to stitch. I considered removing the fabric from the rods and starting to stitch in an embroidery hoop but I don't think it will really make that much difference.
Maybe I should give that a try before tossing the entire thing...
I did manage to find a piece of 28 count evenweave at Hobby Lobby yesterday that is almost the same color as my linen so I won't lose my color palate if I change fabrics.
Decisions, decisions, decisions...
EDITED: I've decided to give the hoop a try before starting over...stay tuned for the final decision!

I had a little finish last night. This is FAITH, one of the Little Sheep Virtues from Little House Needleworks.
FAITH was my carry- around project, the project I work on whenever I'm not at the it at the table working on my Family Sampler. So it was time to dive into the WIP basket to pull out a new carry-around project. I decided on this one:
SUGAR PLUMS, from Country Cottage Needlework.
And I am finally back to working on my Family Sampler, another Little House Needleworks design. I love this piece!
