I'm Stitching Along - 39 Stitches

Amy Powers stitch-along looks like to much fun to pass up! She has invited anyone to join her by stitching a square a day from March 1st to April 8th. To sign up, or just follow along, check out her 39 Squares blog HERE.
I'm playing catch-up since I found out about the stitch-along yesterday. I'm happy to say, I'm all caught up and on track. Whoohoo!
I chose a very springy pastel palette for my sampler. This will be a fun challenge for me, since I've never really done embroidery stitching. I'm already thinking I don't like doing a satin stitch - gosh, it's hard to keep those stitches straight and neat. Ugh!
Here is a breakdown of my squares so far:
Day one: a piece of vintage green variegated tatting
Day two: lavender daisy
Day three: cross stitch stars, tiny ric rac, and pastel beads
Day four: cherries
Day five: bunny

Time for me to check out the day 5 squares from other stitch-along girls - you should too!

I really love that. You're right, I should check it out. I've loved Amy's little embroidery samplers for a long time. I too know very little about embroidery but I love it and this would encourage me to try something new (kind of like the needle-turn appliqué that I posted about this week. Mmmmmm.
btw, you're doing a beautiful job!
