Janet Reid 1835

Happy Friday Friends,
The end of the week brings a finish from the framer. 

 Janet Reid 1835
Chessie & Me
Called for Gentle Arts Simply Wool & Vintage Examplar Linen
I thoroughly enjoyed stitching this sampler.  I was a little leery of stitching it on 28 ct. linen with wool fibers.  My official report is I love stitching with wool.  I want to stitch everything on 28 ct. with a wool conversion.  I beg Gentle Arts to make all their colors in wool so I can convert other patterns I want to stitch to wool. 
A bit passionate, you say?  If you haven't tried wool I highly recommend it.  I used a shorter length than I normally would with cotton and a bigger needle to cut down on friction but all in all I really didn't notice the wool fraying.  I LOVE WOOL! :)
I hope everyone has a fun filled weekend planned. 
Lots of stitching and a trip to JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby for me in the morning. 
Keep on stitchin'
