Today I started yet another project. I bought the entire collection of the Victorian Sampler's - Hearts of America about 7 years ago. My intention was to stitch them (ha! all 50 of them) and make them into a patch work quilt. Well TODAY I finally pulled out one (the Tennessee one - since I live in Tennessee) and began stitching it. I think these will go fairly fast, as they are small. Each state features a Specialty Stitch...Tennessee's is the Chinese Rice Stitch. I spent about 5 hours stitching (along with doing loads of laundry between) and got the state flower done (the Iris). Here is a scan of my WIP on it. I think the flower turned our really pretty!.
I usually don't stitch kits as you can't always predict the floss quality, but I believe these have DMC cotton floss which is what I usually stitch with.
The chart has the colors listed as DMC and it feels like DMC.
