I have wanted to stitch a Quaker sampler for a long time and was very happy to find this SAL.
I am stitching my sampler 1 x 1 on 26 count Ecru fabric of unknown origin, it was a piece of fabric from a grab bag. I've reduced the number of colors that the sampler calls for, left a few which I like and added some Mauve and Purple shades. I wanted to keep White in my palette, tried Blank and B5200 but both did not show up on my fabric. After long experiments with White I substituted it and not sorry about it.
As work on my own designs takes a lot of time, MW sampler is my car project , it is with me wherever I go.
In the pictures you can see my MW palette, and work on Part I.
I really enjoy working on Mary's sampler, it's almost addictive.
Happy stitching to everyone!
