I do stitch, honest I do!

It’s just that I design more!  Here’s what I’m currently stitching in my rotation.  It’s my adaptation of Needleprint’s Judith Hayle Sampler, from the Infinity Chart series.   I sometimes refer to it by other names, by reason of having too many WIPS, too much going on at one time, and generalized ADD!  In any event, Judith Hayle is the real name of this editable sampler from the growing collection of Infinity Charts.   I substituted a favorite Bible verse, added personal motifs, and changed the colors.  I LOVE band samplers and I usually change things to suit myself, so Needleprint’s Infinity charts are perfect for me!

I’m really enjoying stitching this.   Check out Needleprint’s great blog and Infinity Charts for yourself.

PS ~ I’ve re-edited this chart several times since I first posted it.  Viewing it online helps me to see what I want to change in my adaptation of the J. Hayle sampler pattern.  Go to Needleprint to see Jacqueline’s original.
