This sampler was inspired by the memory of learning to write in cursive on blue dotted lines. I remember it specifically because it was the first time I was allowed to use a pen in school. Here you can practice your lines in six different ways with six different stitches, and pick the one you like the best to add your name to the top right hand corner. Please note, this sampler arrives ready to embroider. Examples show one way to complete it, but you can pick your own colors and textures.
There are lots more examples at the dropcloth flickr pool http://www.flickr.com/groups/sampler/
