I am happy to say that I managed to work for about 3 hours on my mystery sampler today and like always I am loving it all the more. I can't wait to finish this row that I am on now. After this row is done, there will only be 2 more rows or 12 more pages. Not too bad!! I hope I can finish it by the end of the year. This year, not next year. LOL It is so big that its sort of awkward for inhand stitching.
