Ann Thompson

Hello, all,
Today I am starting Ann Thompson.  Just what I need, another huge sampler to go along with Manifesto :)  I am using 35 count Abecedarian Blend from R & R and one strand of DMC.  This is quite a bit darker than what Marcia shows, but I like the look of it.  When I was pulling threads, I was confused as the chart says DMC 346.  There is no 346 as far as I can tell.  After consulting Marcia's AVAS converter chart online, I determined that it should be 347.  This picture is from SL's website.  I have only taken a few stitches, so nothing to show yet.  Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US!

Jealous in Virginia,

I have this one on pre-order. Thompson was my beloved Nana's name so is a must stitch for me.

I am going to enjoy following your progress.

This is going to be beautiful, as
all your samplers are!
I can't wait to read it when
(hopefully sometime next year)they do your interview on here!
Your blog is so lovely and am
so impressed with all your samplers!
