Anne Lawle Thread List

Last year our members came up with the name Mastering Mary for our group learning project, can anyone come up with a name for Anne Lawle.

Anne was charted way back when it was customary to sell just kits. Whilst the chart lists the threads used the quantity is not specified so here is the list with DMC/AVAS

5@ 712/brut
3@ 3012/2124
2@ 223/2941
2@ 932/1712
2@ 3750/1716
1@ 3045/3823

Plus two skeins of DMC cotton #822 for executing the cut and drawn work

Marsha has advised that the recommended cut of linen with a 2" margin is 15" x 33" on 35ct

Hi Nicola. Could you give me a few tips about linens for this project. I get the chart only from the states to save the duty which would be added on if I bought the whole kit. Could we go for a higher count than 35, or would that be asking for trouble; keep the colour very light; would a distressed linen work; any suggestions welcome before I go shopping!
