I am Carolyn from NC. I bought this Drawn Thread Souvenir Sampler design late 2005, spent oodles of time personalizing it for my family, started it, and stopped. I think it was because the centering was off, even though there's room. Now I need to re-personalize it because events have changed. I've also realized that drat it, I forgot that it was 28 and not 32 ct. and have very little room at the bottom. Must have been half asleep when I started. Picture is of it now, but I have to frog it and start again.
I also have a Nouveau Encore personalized sampler that I bought two-three years ago, started and stopped a few times, and really want to stitch it. I'm devoting at least one day a month to each sampler; hopefully more, but I'll keep it simple for now. Looking forward to seeing everyone's progress!
