18th Century Sampler - Block #7, 11

My fingers are still sore but that didn't stop me from stitching this weekend. I'm still stitching the darning patterns. For these larger squares, because there is so much space in between the stitches, I decided to stick with one color.

Block #7
You can't really see it in this picture (because there was no light when I took them this morning), but cream of the thread also shows from underneath the canvas. It's lovely in person. I'll have to try to take better pictures this weekend. Nowadays, by the time I get home all the good light is gone and there is no light when I leave the house in the morning :|

Block #11
There are two more darning squares, I've already started one yesterday. For these I'm going back to combining the two colors.
