Starting IAMEK Dated 1801
I started IAMEK on New Year's Day along with another sampler, Jane Pattison by Shakespeare's Peddler. Both samplers are in a weekly rotation for now, probably until there is further progress on both. As you can see, I am still on the border but am looking forward getting to the fun stuff next week! I ended up changing fabrics because my original choice seemed too dark after all. I'm using a piece of 40 count linen that I had in my stash, and I think it's an older piece of Lakeside Linen Vintage Light Examplar. Please forgive the wrinkled state of my work! I'm seriously considering not pressing my pieces before blogging them this year to avoid the stress on fabric and silk.
