A Post on Behalf of Alex

Hi everyone!  I am so happy to be joining you in this SAL.   I have a lot going on right now with some major health isssues so I have decided to stitch one of the easier Scarlet Letter designs.   My pattern is A Pattern Record...it does not have a ton of specialty stitches and it looks like it will be easy to break down into sections to stitch. 

Pattern Book Record

 It only calls for 3 colors...I think I will use HDF silks for mine.  I have not done a floss toss yet because I am waiting on a package from Vikki Clayton (HDF silks)... I don't even remember what I ordered but maybe 1 or 2 of my colors will come from my silk order.  I really like stitching blackwork designs...so this one fits in perfectly with some of the other sesigns I have finished.

Happy Stitching everyone!

I`m so glad someone else is stitching this beauty with me! I find double running easy in one way (the mechanics of the stitch) and hard in another (concentration is a must!). I can`t do it and watch TV or chat with hubby as I always miss something and either have to rip or add another thread. What fabric are you using?

Hello Alex

Love, love, love band samplers.
The blackwork stitches up so quickly.
I look forward to seeing your color choices.
