Seeing Red

I finished this french marking sampler from the Summer 2011 S&ANQ while I was avoiding Ann Pennsylvania Peacock. I used DMC 3831 and 356.

I think I finally found a pretty good match for the sampler thread on Ann's dress. It still stresses me though. Look at the warped band on the house. I can't decide whether it bothers me enough to actually rip it out and restitch it though!

Congrats on your French sampler finish!

As for Ann, keep stitching on her...you will know in time as you work with her whether to rip out the part that is bothering you. Personally, I think your work is stunning!

I think Ann looks great and the marking sampler is sweet.
Happy 4th!
