I had been thinking about starting BBD Christmas Garden next but figured that this little gem won't take very long. This is my progress after just a few days with needle in hand.
When I was home the other weekend a friend asked me if I was tending to stitch the border first now. I hadn't really thought about it except that I have done every sampler with a border this way since stitching Mary Roe this spring. I guess I just like knowing that the border will match (or where I'd have to fudge in the case of Ann Sandles). Plus the border is boring and then I have all the fun stuff left! So, I guess I am starting with borders and then doing the rest now but I don't know that I'm always going to stitch this way!
