Here is what I have managed to do on week twos sampler, which focused on 'points' of interest. Week three is an incredibly interesting lesson. I haven't read it all yet, keep re-reading the first half, just to take it all in.
The sampler is using mostly fly stitch, a few detached chains, some french and bullion knots, and a few beads. I have actually found the the grid of the linen quite distracting this week. I have a fairly good eye for distance and size, but the grid kept putting me off. I did buy some felt, and I'm itching to try that, so I may move on to that.
