This sampler, when finished, will be beautiful. I simply cannot fathom how the designer came up with this. She must have an exquisite mind.
At the top, with the flowers is part 8. I did part 8 before part 7 for two reasons. The first reason is that part 8 has much more stitching to it and I thought if I did it first, part 7 would seem much more doable before the deadline! The second reason is that part 7 had a color of floss that I didn't have at the time. Of course this "problem" has been rectified.
