Q is for Quaker sampler. Or rather, the materials for same: Scarlet Letter Circling Alphabets pattern, 28-count evenweave linen, and six colors of silk floss. Back in January, I was all keen to stitch this up. That hasn't happened. I don't quite know what went wrong – I still love the sophisticated shapes and clear colors of the sampler. But it's time to call it quits and remove this one from the project queue.
And Q is for qiviut, yet another luxury fiber I'd love to try someday.
