Drawn Thread's Sampler Game Board - Week 1

This is quite a fun and an easy going design. I am stitching this grand piece on Platinum Cashel with DMC threads. I think it's gonna take some time :)

Noticed I ommitted the year...rather be safe than sorry ;)

Comment Notes: Thank you all for the lovely comments on my pinkeep. I'm beaming :) Yes the backing fabric was perfect, my sincere thanks to Margaret, who gave me both the linen and the backing fabric. As the parable goes...when given your lot...make full use of it! Luigi, please leave your email address in the comment section and I will email you. I will delete your email promptly after receipt. Also a big thank you to new visitors/commentors to my blog. I appreciate you taking the time.

  8. I had hesitated to stitch the animals and flowers in the other sense like you. Finally, I decided to stay with the design but I think your way is fine!
    I have done abc and four squares on four. It's a drug!
    Be very careful while stitching: there are many mistakes in the chart. For instance: in the square close to the squirrel, you're not supposed to stitch a blue tree... Shortly said: check the pic often...
    HUgs!
