Let me know if I am being redundant by posting photos of the same sampler inching along, but the Thompson oval sampler continues on after six drafts, and going strong. It's one thing charting a sampler done entirely in cross stitch and relatively symmetrical, but this girl pulled out all of her tricks and trying to reinterpret her work isn't easy. My goal is to translate the pattern into something that all of you can decipher, as close to the original look as possible. We can discuss the migraines later. The second photo shows the next piece in line for reproduction, unless something more exciting distracts me. Love to all.
