Red Aida sampler

Yesterday I shared the last stitches on my red Aida sampler, today it’s completely finished. There are TAST stitches for weeks 25-29. I’ve added some 2mm beads, blue ones between the double row of bonnet stitches,
green ones at the ends of the Palestrina stitches and between the crossed Palestrina stitches
and green ones between the triangle up and down buttonhole stitch.
The big picture of this sampler is on my Flickr-page.

    1. Thanks, Suz. No, I'm not going to frame this. It's going to be part of my TAST 2012 fabric book.

    1. Thanks! Yes Aida works very nice for samplers. It's easy to see what I've done when I want to repeat it again.

  3. I agree with Suztats, this sampler should be framed!
    Stitching on red is really striking. A beautiful piece. Well done, again!

    1. Thanks, Queenie. I cannot frame everything, there's just not enough wall to hang it! It's going to be part of my TAST 2012 fabric book.
