Hitting the scrap pile and sampler progress

I finally had the opportunity to used some of the pieces I had cut from my scrap bins last winter. I pulled out the 2 1/2" solid strips stack. I am pairing up an off white solid with the prints for the neutral baby quilts.
I sorted out the off whites from the whites and got to sewing. Here is what I have sewn so far. I am going to have to cut more 2 1/2" strips from yardage.
I continue to work on the sampler before work and at lunchtime. Here is where I ended yesterday morning and where I am at now.  I  had run out of the brown floss I was using as I stitched that row between the large alphabet and the numbers.   I was not about to go to the store for one skein of floss.  After looking in my floss case and then in the floss bag where I have all the colors for the Xmas stocking, I found a color that was close.  I can't even tell that I used two different browns.

You are going to be done with the sampler so quickly. I remember how it is with cross stitch though, it is hard to leave it alone.

You are whizzing along with the sampler. I guess that you make faster progress when you are enjoying yourself - easier to keep motivated (not that you generally seem to lack motivation).
