red & white sampler

I've been quiet for a while, didn't know really what to talk about and have been busy stitching away, and learning more and more about cross stich by doing and reading history and reference books (that was a long sentence, wasn't it?).
I finally got round to talking a photo of my red & white sampler. It's quite large, so difficult to get a good photo, that's why it's folded. Excuse the wrinkles - no sense in ironing it, that'll come when it's done and ready for framing.

This is such a fun project to do!
It's really relaxing to work with one color, and the hardest thing of all is to decide wich figure or letter to do next and where. after that, it's just a matter of counting...
