Happy 2013! Wow, 2012 was gone in a flash!
Well, the plan was to start
Emma Miles 1848 Sampler today for Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year SAL. I have the
chart and I have the silks. My only thing left was to pick my linen from my
vast stash.....Well, my stash wasn't as vast as I hoped! I love sitiching on 36
count fabric and I had hope the "right" linen would be in there....I have tons
of Lakeside Linen from Theresa's Linen of the month club from years back. The
only problem was all I have is fat quarters and I need a fat half to do Emma on
Plan B, was to find some 40 count that might work. I could
possibley use a fat quarter on 40 count. Alas, I just didn't have the right
color linen I was hoping for.
In the picture below, I have put a light
cream color 32 cout linen...I am going to buy a large piece of 36 count light
cream colored linen. I like how that looks. So, I will be shopping for a fat
half of Edinborough.
I hope this isn't an indication on how my 2013 is going to be!
Anyways, Happy New Year! May all your stitches be happy ones!
