Hello, my name is Susan and I currently have 34 WIPs. This is Jane Longstreth, a sampler from the Vassar Collection that I started 1/5/05. It became a UFO when I got seduced by a number of other projects and because it will require some resizing of the chart to finish. Those branches over on the left will need leaves that were to be traced from the chart and then stem stitched. Except that I did not use the same count as the chart called for and I'll need to re-size them. I finally decided that I'm up for the challenge and that this will be in my rotation. I'll put in about 10 days a month on it with the goal of finishing by the end of the summer.

I'm inspired to start another sampler now but NOT until I've finished the dratted poppies!

It looks good,
