Here's my current progress on Jane Plews Sampler. The designer just updated us with additional parts which is good because I'm almost ready for it. I'm really enjoying this sampler. It "just" uses good ole DMC but aren't the colors beautiful together?
I felt like I needed to stitch something patriotic but instead of starting something new, I found BBD's In Full Glory still kitted up (minus the fabric) from when I stitched part of it for an exchange block. So that's my patriotic project for this year.
