A Post on Behalf of Sharon H

My name is Sharon and I am from North Carolina, USA.  I, too, am celebrating a "milestone" birthday in February (actually its the 11th anniversary of my 29th!) and this seemed to be the perfect thing to do!! Thank you, Nicola, for your wonderful idea.

I have had several SL charts I wanted to do for a while, but something else always bumped them out of line and they seemed to never get done - maybe this way, at least one will get done.

I am not technological by any means (just ask my sister or brother-in-law, they will just roll their eyes. They think I'm a lost cause!) so I am taking this as a "technology challenge" as well - to keep up with posts of my progress.  Generally, I get around to downloading photos, etc, eventually - this year I will attempt to do better!  Maybe this challenge will improve my computer skills, too!

The above is a photo of my start of Dorothy Walpole - I had the chart, so I have dipped into my stash for linen and silks. I didn't have many of the AVAS, so I am using Gloriana, Belle Soie, AVAS, and Dinky Dyes. It may not be exact, but I"m pleased with the results so far.

Thanks for your wonderful blog and this glorious idea!  I have enjoyed reading everyone's plans for this wonderful year!
