My name is Jane C, I live in Washington D.C. but I grew up in Massachusetts... nice to see another New Englander in the RR!
I am 30, not married, no kids or pets... I work as a television news producer. I have cross stitched since I was a girl but I have also been learning to quilt which has distracted me a little from my first love, so I am looking forward to having this project to keep me tied in to cross stitching.
I have participated in every Sampler House exchange on the Legacy board so I am a bonafide house lover. I am so excited you all decided to stitch a round robin!
I am just finishing up Dutch Beauty, you can see my work here...
I am looking forward to getting to know all of you better!
I really love the Dijon original and I am leaning toward a really lush flowery sampler, with lots of vines and animals and as little white space as possible. I might make the sampler a little bit smaller to accommodate that request :)
I am still trying to find a house I love to start off ... I can't decide, there are so many wonderful ones. I'm thinking Moira Blackburn at the moment.
One question I have though - like a lot of people, I absolutely fell in love with that original Prairie Schooler birdhouse - does anyone have that pattern or spotted where I could get one?! I do love it.
Can someone tell me about how large a piece of fabric you are getting?
