No knitting in sight because I'm in love with cross stitch again! After I reacquainted myself with the Paradigm Lost Sampler, I got antsy to find another project to start -- something on Aida and with some color. (Why Aida? Well, Aida is easier to stitch on because it isn't evenweave like linen and has holes which are easier to see. I'm stitching Paradigm Lost on linen and my eyes get very tired!)
So I started browsing around the web and I came across The Gift of Stitching which is a digital cross stitch magazine. I was excited because Julia Line was doing a "Mystery Sampler" in the current and upcoming issues! Let me explain -- first of all, Julia Line is the designer behind Long Dog Sampler and she designed Paradigm Lost. Secondly, I should probably explain a Mystery Sampler to non-cross stitchers. Basically you get part of the chart for the design each month. So this month I work on the top 1/4 of the design and next month I work the next section and so on. As you can probably tell, I've been having fun stitching this up. Now I just have to find the time to start one of the cross stitch projects from the latest mailorder!
