Daisychain Sampler

I started this crewel work sampler with gusto back in July when I first received the kit. Basically I was completing a letter a day until I got to "Q". While working on the "Q", I got discourage by the lazy daisies I was making and the sampler got put away for several months and I worked on other things for a while.

But after getting back from Christmas vacation, I really wanted to finish some of the many many many projects I have that lying around in progress and half started. That combined with the announcement of a new cross stitch sampler made me get over my lazy daisy angst and get back to work!

Daisychain Q

Within a week of picking it up again, I had finished it off. And I really don't know what my problem with those lazy daisies was. The finished "Q" turned out just fine. I'm such a weirdo sometimes.
