2010 Ozark Sampler SAL

I started my new 2010 SAL this week. The design is by Debbie Draper and the Floss is Ozark Sampler Threads. The color of the border is Emerald. I was stitching it and I decided to outline it in black and WOW did the color just POP!!
I have to tell you this not keeping track of stitching is driving me crazy. I am finding it is harder than I thought. I am also not staying in my rotation...just stitching on what I feel like and this is hard too.
The weather here has been just beautiful! It has been around 55-60 degrees each day. The only problem is that I am stuck in the classroom all day. However, the I haved noticed that it is staying lighter a little bit everyday. This means that spring is just around the corner!!! I am so excited!!!

Love the colours you are stitching the sampler in. Glad that your weather has improved.

Wow, I missed out on not doing this SAL this year :o( I'm with you on looking forward to Spring - on the way to college last night it wasn't COMPLETELY dark, which was nice. I think it will be easier to face college evening classes when it's light when I get there :o)

A very nice start on your SAL. Love the colour when it pops out because of being backstitched all around.
I also wait for the day when I can see a bit more light in the east when driving to work in the morning. That's the sign that spring is around the corner. But in my corner of the world I still have to wait until the middle of February or so.
