At Least I'm Stitching

 I may not be very good at blogging, but at least I'm stitching. The Lily Sampler is slowly coming along. Some of these stitches are a bit much for 40 count, but at least I don't have to worry about coverage. LOL.

For instance, these flowers are done in cross stitch and arrowhead stitch, which has 3 legs so they're pretty dense. And that last dividing band is more of the French stitch that I complained about before...except this time there is a THIRD row! Every time I think I have it down and try to stitch without the magnifier I end up frogging! So back to the Dazor. Finally finished that band last night. I'm afraid to look ahead and see if there is any more.
