More Ann Grant

I'm still working on Ann. Every time I start to feel a little bored, I pull up Margaret's beautiful framed finish (scroll down) for inspiration.

That tree took forever and I'm so glad to be past it! I'm a little over a third done. I'm really going to try to stick with it. We'll see how long it will last - I'm already feeling the urge to move on.

  16. One of my stitching friends has adopted "inch by inch" when working on big projects, and, in fact stitched a little inch worm next to her name on her most recent big sampler finish.

    Keep up the good work.
