It's OK.......I guess

Why did I fall in love with this piece when I saw someone else stitching it?

'The Eliza Hills 1856 Sampler' from HandWork Samplers
stitched 1/2 on 28 ct hand dyed (coffee, tea, microwave) evenweave
with Belle Soie silks
started 01/24/2012 - completed 04/22/2012
I was so excited about this piece. I hand dyed the fabric myself and it is much darker and warmer IRL. The Belle Soie silks are lovely to the touch yet there was something about them that made them OK but not great to stitch with.

Complain, complain, complain. I do love the saying and at least I have another piece for my sampler wall. :)

No complains about my next finish in progress. The colors are vibrant and the picture lovely. Will post an update on that soon.
