OH NO ! ! I FORGOT HOW TO Cross Stitch

I did this sampler last year for my Youngest daughter. I am currently working on one for my middle daughter but it has sort of been put on a back burner.
With all the other needle work I have been doing  this last year, I have lost my knack to CS. Not only that but I find that my eyes aren't what they were either. I am liking punch needle a lot more as it is easier on the eyes.
Wow. Who would've thought that I would forget how to do this. My mind was a complete blank. 
Seriously though, I just couldn't even remember where to begin. I did get my fabric stretched onto my working frame only to realize that I used my punch needle fabric VS my Cross stitch fabric. DUH ! ! !  I did manage to change that last night and I am already  working on a new sampler for my New years journal, so to speak. I have two plans of attack. I am going to do one sampler as a review of last year, and I am going to do an ongoing sampler for this year sort of a monthly journal of sorts. Well, that is the plan and you know what they say about best laid plans..... heheh
Hope you all get your inspirational caps on and are starting those New Year projects.
Happy New Year 2012
