Quite a while ago I came up with the idea of creating an ASCII chart done as an old-school cross-stitched Sampler, I liked the juxtaposition of the modern and the old. I started the project (stitching the grid) but became discouraged by the slow progress. So I left if there for ages. Recently I got keen to start again, but decided to simplify and shrink the design a little. More importantly I spread my progress over the grid and some of its contents so I was always “making progress”. 60+ hours stitching, 5k+ “stitches”
