......RECEIVING A PACKAGE IN THE MAIL FROM NICOLA AND THE
I was so happy to have won the March drawing and the sampler that I picked has arrived.
I had so fun much visiting the SL website looking for my chart. Like many of you, my list of SL charts that I want to stitch is growing rapidly. However the one that I really want to stitch after Matilda is SDW A German Band Sampler. I love seeing the posts about this sampler and I have found myself drawn to it from the very first. I also wanted to stitch a German sampler because so much of my family heritage as well as my husbands goes back to Germany. So picking the chart was accomplished and now I had to choose the linen. I emailed Nicola with my choice of SDW and explained that I was still deciding on the linen choice and she suggested the kit with cotton floss. What a wonderful suggestion and as you can see.....I followed her advice and could not be happier. The linen is beautiful, it appears to be close to 36 count Edinburgh in the colour Flax. ( This is what the others are using that are stitching this sampler and they all are happy with it....so I decided to go with what is working well....grins....).
Thank-you so much Nicola! I absolutely love this kit and am so excited to start. The colours are beautiful, the linen is perfect and your little note was really special. This will be a much loved sampler. This is by far the largest sampler that I have ever stitched and I know that I will enjoy every single stitch....and after looking at the pattern there A LOT of those LOL....but I will treasure the journey and always remember the wonderful memories made during your Scarlet Letter Year.
So now the only question that remains is ....will I start this along with Matilda.....or will I finish Matilda first?
Happy Stitching Everyone and I hope all of you have a very blessed Easter!
