Exceedingly Diligent

In All Things be Exceedingly Diligent
Needlework Press 2018
Legacy Linen 37 ct Russian Tea Cake
Au Ver A Soie silks

Saltbox Stitcher is such an enabler!  Carol, the Saltbox Stitcher showed her framed Diligence sampler and I was smitten.  This sampler is long and skinny (406 stitches wide and 95 stitches high).

When I finish the stitching it is going to be approximately 24 inches long.  No worries, I already have a spot picked out where it will hang when finished and framed.

This is my first time stitching a Needlework Press sampler/design and my first time stitching on 37 ct Legacy linen--I like them both!

Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and diligence.

  1. What a gorgeous linen color that is! You are off to a fabulous start on this piece.

  2. ahhhh very nice ! I am using 37 ct on two HATS samplers recommended choice by the Attic. I like it just fine but then I have always felt Legacy linen was awesome. I do still prefer hand dyed linen but it seems to be harder and harder to obtain in quantity for the shop owners. Enjoy ! Mel

  3. Oh, wow--looking so good!
    Looking forward to seeing more of this!

  4. This sampler is a favorite of mine. I love Carol/Saltbox Stitcher! I come away inspired to stitch all things sampler but then reality sets in! I have obligation stitching to take care of. Have fun!

  5. I have seen that sampler and really like it!What a good quote from Abigail Adams.

  6. Oh this is pretty! I need to look up Saltbox Stitcher. Someone else mentioned her too.

  7. This is a beautiful Sampler, I am looking forward to seeing your finish.
    I need to look up Saltbox Stitcher.


  8. As stated by Stanford Medical, It is really the one and ONLY reason women in this country get to live 10 years more and weigh on average 19 KG less than we do.

    (And by the way, it really has NOTHING to do with genetics or some secret-exercise and EVERYTHING around "how" they are eating.)

    P.S, What I said is "HOW", and not "what"...
