Kitting up SDW

I recently received my chart for SDW A German Sampler circa 1710 and now need to get my materials together.  I'm pretty sure I want to go with the AVAS silks, but it seems that 1425 has been discontinued.  Does anyone know what would be recommended in its place? 

I also need to choose a linen, which will probably be a special order to get the linear half.  I know I'll want a stitch count of 35-40, but the major choice is fabric color.  I love the Lakeside Linen in Vintage Sand Dune that I'm using for And They Sinned, but I think I may want to go a bit lighter for SDW. 

If you're stitching SDW or have already finished, I'd love to hear what you did for #1425 and what fabric you chose.

Hi Theresa, I checked with AVAS and they recommend 1426 as the closest substitute. I am currently stitching this on 36ct Edinburgh in Flax

Hello Teresa

Marsha kits up SDW with 1425 substituted with 1426. I am also using 36ct Edinburgh in Flax and am very pleased with the results.

You are going to love stitching this sampler.

Thanks for the info on the AVAS silk. I recently finished Gigi R's Belles-Lettres D on 32 ct. Belfast in Flax, so I know that's a great color.
