Use It Up Sampler

I started this sampler in 2011, and didn't get very far before I was distracted by other things. I was determined to make some progress this time around. And I did! The sampler is fairly small in comparison with some of the other projects that I'm stitching, so this is about 25% finished now.

I'm not using the DMC it calls for. The design is older, in a leaflet from Leisure Arts, and the model photo looked really dull. I picked some overdyed floss colors (can't remember if they were Weeks Dye Works or Gentle Arts Sampler Threads at the moment), and I'm pleased with how nice they look. Very subtle. Oh, and the fabric is 36 ct. Edinburgh linen from Picture This Plus, color Relic.
