Stitching Completed - LeNouvaeu Sampler

I'm doing a partial happy dance tonight :) The stitching is complete on the LeNS! I can't wait to start the beading tomorrow night. It was very hard to stop and take these pictures - I just wanted to keep stitching away. I'm glad tomorrow's Friday, I might just stitch until I'm done. Some of you have asked what linen I've stitching LeNS on and honestly I can't remember. My LNS suggested the fabric so I went with it. I'll probably be taking into the shop soon so I'll ask and let you know soon.

I've kitted up my next project. Since I'll be traveling to the Bahamas the 1st week in May I decided that it would be a good time to start With My Needle's Alphabet Sampler Book. I'd love to use the silks the design calls for, but I need to save my pennies so I've decided to use the DMC conversion. My fabric choice is Lakeside Linen Vintage Luna. The colors looked really nice when I did a floss toss tonight. I'll try to post a picture of the floss toss this weekend.
Until next time - tootles :)
