Crewel Friday

Here's the sampler, damp blocked and looking much nicer. It's ready to go.And last night I finished the first sampler pocket. It needs (desperately) to be damp stretched--the instructions provide very specific instructions for this so I'll tackle that this weekend. I think between the two I've covered the required blanket and long-and-short stitches.I'd love to be able to get this into the mail next week.

Oh, and why all the green? A while back World Embroideries gave me a lovely box of crewel threads and there were many skeins of every shade of one family of green. The abundance led me to choose it for the sampler.

I'm so glad the wool is being used! I like your sampler too.
