Am I a Hoarder???

While going through my stash to pick a sampler, I discovered that I have 25 unstitched (and mostly unopened) Scarlet Letter charts, and 5 kits!  One of them is even silk!  I guess I really must be a hoarder, but I really have the best of intentions...

I did buy all the floss yesterday for the SL Christmas Sampler (my choice) and am going to use plain old DMC.  I nearly always use DMC because of the cost.  I already have some 32 count lambswool linen and will probably use that.  I would like to get started this week, but I am pretty busy with Christmas stuff, so it might have to wait.

How are everyone else's stitching preparations coming?

Hello Melinda

I am just waiting on my fabric for Dona Dorothea. In the UK it is never easy to source that extra special piece of linen. I have decided on Lakeside vintage meadow rue.

I already have three other designs fully kitted but Dorothea is tugging at my heart the hardest.

If you have any out of print charts would you post about them so that we build up a record of Marsha's work.

Am searching my stash for Hannah Breed and silk fibers. As Hannah is a large sampler I think a trip to the LNS may be in store.

Yes you are! Not a hoarded but, say nicely, a collector. Are you willing to share some pictures?

30? You have 30? You win!

well if some of those samplers are OOP then I say you have done yourself a service 'hoarding' those charts.

Preparation was easy for me - I ordered the whole kit from Marsha easy-peasy. I just have to wait for the mailman to deliver it.

I think most stitchers are hoarders, it's part of the fun.

I only have my charts ordered - i keep going back and forward with myself, do i want an exact reproduction even if i dont like the linen? or do i want to buy something i think is more suited - same with threads, I mean we have so many choices availabe to us today - what to do - what to do...

I am waiting for my order to arrive, but do have a nice piece of 32ct cream Sienna linen I think we work perfect. Been driving myself crazy trying to pick a color, looking at silks, but I think I may be going with dmc too, you can't beat the cost. Can't wait to get started too!

Yes Melinda, you are a hoarder/ collector but you are in the right company here. I think we all collect patterns. I too have more than I will ever stitch and also more wool that I will hook and way too many books to read. But I love it all. It is my family that won't like it when I die. LOL Brenda
