Wish me luck...my first reproduction sampler

Hello, today I am finally ready to start my very first reproduction sampler!   Meet Dorothy Crawford 1845.   I found a linen that I like, the 30 ct  from Lori at Notforgotten Farm.  I have picked out floss, wound it on little bobbins, and am ready to go!  Wish me luck, and PLEASE send me any comments or suggestions that you have.  I need all the help that I can get :)
