The Monkey Sampler: The Early Years:
Anyone who reads this blog with any regularity knows that I rarely finish things in days or weeks, it's usually years and years before anything I start in good faith ends up framed or pillowed or gifted.
The sampler above may be the exception since so far it's been a pleasure to stitch on. What I think might bog me down is that the green grass covers the bottom half of the sampler. Yes, that's a good bit of solid stitching I see in my future, but sometimes that's a wonderful thing. It makes watching tv and stitching much more pleasant. Then again it can get a bit boring, but I've never really sought out stitching challenges. Life is challenging enough without seeking it from a hobby. Nope no rock climbing here, a walk on the beach is adventurous enough for moi. The counting alone keeps me on my toes. Oh and the Sharpie and highlighter gnomes too.
The rabbits are centered, it's my intials that are off just a bit. Since I'm just a bit off it seems to suit, I also don't want to rechart them a gazillion times before I get it right. We'll call it creative license, or maybe we should just call it lazy, but perfection, it's boring. Or is that what all slackers say?
