Hope everyone is having a great time choosing what charts/styles they want to use because I sure am. I just wanted to check a couple of things with you all please.
I really love Ewe & Eye & Friends charts as well as Sheepish Designs and Blackbird Designs and Carriage House Samplings and, what I wanted to know is would anybody mind just either
(a) stitching half a chart and leaving the other half for another member to stitch because it is so long or big or something or
(b) just picking bits and pieces out of a chart to stitch?
If you will be stitching one half of a chart I will enclose the chart and the floss (if it is anything other than DMC) with my RR. Please let me know if you are not comfortable with either of these ideas.
I have finally decided on what fabric I am going to use and I am going to order it on Tuesday. It is from Crossed Wing and is called Whispering Pine and I just love it. I have had such a time choosing because I love most of their fabric but this one just has the edge as far as I am concerned though I do love April and Sky as well. I might just buy one of them to stitch Their Song on it because I can order both at the same time. I am going to order the Whispering Pine on 36 count and hope nobody has a problem with stitching on that count - I want it over two with one strand of floss/silk/thread because if you do then write and I shall order it on 32count instead but please let me know before Tuesday ok but either way I really want it stitched over 2 using one strand - but I shall enclose this instruction with my RR.
Last but by no means least the last post refers to:
a) Initials on the RR - if you look at the image above you will see that there aren't any initials dates or anything on it and that is really the way I would like it and;
b) I'm not sure about a border either and rather think I don't want one - what do the rest of you think?
I personally think that if any of us wants a border than it could be divided into 12 and each of us a do a bit of it - what do you all think about that? I have been studying this Sampler for ages and the things I like best about it are:
1) The fact that it isn't symmetrical but it the sides and top and bottom are and
2) The fact that people haven't just used one chart but taken bits from other charts and adapted it
Ok you will be pleased to know that this is all from me for now except to say that I hope everyone has a great weekend. Personally it's my 60th birthday on Monday and I have updated my blog with photos of my son's wedding so if you would like to see what I look like just click on My Blog and it will take you straight there.
