Dear Diary Progress

I really don't have much to write about, but I thought I would post a picture of the progress that I made on the Dear Diary sampler. I did not finish Rebecca Small's section, but I hope to next week. I really like the red that is used in this pattern, DMC 355.


This weekend I am participating in the HAED Sampler SAL. This is a year-long SAL where you just stitch on a sampler of your choosing every 3rd weekend of the month. Of course, the samplers aren't HAED designs, so you find the SAL organized in the HAEDless Stitching section. If you like samplers, you should go take a look at the SAL thread because there are a lot of beautiful ones being stitched.

I decided to go with Sampler Saisons 2007 by Anagram Diffusion, even though it is going to be enormous. I don't know what it is about me and big projects. I'll post a picture next week of my progress. This should be my last new start for a long time. I certainly have enough to work on now. Here is a picture of what it will look like when completed, except mine will be blue.
