So along with the change to AVAS I made a start on Floba 35ct cream. Start number 1! The cream really didn't show up the pale colours so well. I should learn to trust Marsha.
Back to the unbleached linen and start from the top with the double running and satin stitches. Start 2! Now maybe it was just me, but I couldn't get the satin stitches to sit right, and to be honest, Joanna was about to be put into a dusty corner once more.
Then we had our trip to France, and I couldn't really take SDW to finish...too big...so I printed off the final page of Joanna, and hid her in the suitcase. The final panel is all in cross stitch - or so I thought - something nice and simple to get to grips with. Get a good start, working upwards towards that blasted satin stitch.

I had a lovely surprise on my return, the Simile Chart that I was lucky enough to win arrived. Many thanks to Nicola, and Marsha for their generosity and for making this Scarlett Letter year so much fun. Another one I can't wait to start. This Scarlet Letter year is going to have to go on longer than 2014!
