Manifesto...an update.

Funny how in my head I had gone a bit further than I really have.  I started Manifesto last year when the pattern came out, on 40ct linen. Decided my eyes couldn't take it so having done the sun in the far corner, cut my losses and started again on 35ct.  Got to the sun again and then put it down to get involved in other delights that Nicola dangled in front of me....and finish Ann Medd.  Now she is known as the Mother of all Samplers but I think here Manifesto is coming up as a rival.  It is HUGE and a complete coverage.  Anyway I picked it back up again in May, and total focus this is where I am.   Slightly hampered I think by having to use a hoop as my Millennium Frame isn't big enough, I started of colouring in as I went but as you can see I have moved on to outlining for now and I will do the infill when I need times, where a pattern is a hindrance, eg car journeys.  Next year I am doing the Mary Hurst SAL, Jenny Bean as part of the other SAL, and doing And They Sinned as part of a small SAL. Manifesto will have to go in line, so trying to get as much done as I can now.

You've made fantastic progress on this one. Thanks for sharing. I've been wondering how well a hoop would work for this project.
