Hello fellow SL stitchers. Many thanks to Jo and Nicola for being very patient with me in taking up my invitation. Not being very IT literate, my husband had to help me in the end!
I have just started my first SL chart, A Catte, and I am enthralled with it. Background fabric is Lakeside Vintage, color chosen to go with my "green" Celadon pottery.
Living on the east side of the UK, we visit Edinburgh on an occasional basis and last year toured Holyrood House quite a few times to get the maximim benefit from an annual pass. The Mary Queen of Scots exhibition in Holyrood House features the original A Catte among other pieces of needlework, I love looking at it, and this is why I have chosen this particular SL chart.
I am using AVAS silks for the first time and am impressed with the thickness of a strand on 36 ct. Hopefully in a week's time, I can persuade my husband to take a picture of my progress and upload it for me.
Added 02/17/13: First weekend's progress.
(Can't see how to add a picture to a comment; only to a post!)
