Question for you all?

Hello ladies, can you help? I'm trying to decide on a fabric for SDW. What colour have you stitched it on or what zweigart shade is closest to the fabric in the kit?  Thanks for your help, always find making choices very difficult. Xx

I am stitching this on 36count Edinburgh in colour Flax I am happy with it, not sure what is included in the kit. You can see progress photos here (search for label SDW) or on my blog :D

Hi Jennifer,
I just received the kit in the mail and according to Nicola it is very similiar to Edinburgh 36 count in the color Flax. You can see a picture of it in my last post on blog two titled Happiness Is.....I am really happy with the linen that came in the kit and I can hardly wait to start this sampler. I too had a hard picking out the linen but Nicola and Marsha both were really helpful.
Good luck :)

Thank you Elaine and Jenny. I've had a look a both your pictures and really like the look of the flax linen. I'm going to give it a go. Thanks for both your help.

Hi Jennifer, I am also using 36 ct Edinborough flax, although my linen I think is a lighter color than others using the same. I got mine in the U.S. and maybe it is different in the U.K? You can see my most recent update at my blog....

I like flax, but had recently done another sampler in that color. I had a small piece of 32 ct Zweigart in Days Gone By which I like, so when I found that in 36 ct Edinburgh this week, I ordered that for my SDW.

Same for me and I am very pleased with how it looks.

The linen that Marsha uses in a lot of her samplers is natural linen, made special for her. Zweigart Flax is the closest to it. You can also buy Zweigart Natural , which is almost identical. I have a SL kit, Elizabeth Simon, which is kitted with the natural linen. It is almost identical to Zweigart Flax. I hopes this helps. Kay Lynn
