Embroidery Sampler ~ Making progress

Here is the beginning stage of my embroidery sampler. I used a fine cross-stitch material I had on had as scrap material. The spaces make practice stitching easier. It's been years since I did any embroidery. 

I've added more stitches since I started, and I have to say, I'm glad I'm stitching again. Giving myself the goal of one stitch a day, keeps it less overwhelming. The garden keeps me very busy, but in a good "busy" way.

I really like this. I have plans to make a stitch "book" for my daughter.

I always have something to stitch or crochet within reach.

Have a beautiful day.
