Quick Update

     I shouldn't work very much in the evening. I have corrected the pattern. Stitch the 36ct. fabric with 1 thread of floss over 2 linen threads. (So much easier!)

    
     All participants gather your supplies this week. We will begin stitching the project the week of May 12th. Just send me a picture during the week sometime, via e-mail and I can show some of them here or send to my Instagram link.   I think if everyone can devote 2-3 hours on the project sometime during the week we can have this sweet piece finished in no time!

Katrina's sent her color information as shown above: 
Linen - R&R Reproductions, Liberty Gathering Gray
Floss -  
GA Otter Creek (for Brethren Blue) 
GA Piney Woods with some Endive mixed in (made that change after the photo) (for Grecian Gold) 
CC Root Beer Float (for Copper) 
GA Pink Azalea (for Rhubarb) 
GA Mountain Mist (for Toasted Barley) 
GA Weathered Barn (for Loganberry)
 
Again, here is the link for our pattern. 

My instagram site is: blackbirdalma
the link for our stitch along is #BBDhersampler-1796
Can hardly wait to begin. Many thanks to all of you for joining us!!!
 
My e-mail is  if you have any questions.
 
Until later!

  14. Thank you so much for this sweet design. I can't find your email but wanted to ask, is the border to the left of the first A missing the double stitch on the picot? I jumped the gun and just repeated the pattern so I'm off one line! It's not the first time for me and certainly won't be the last but it still looks good. Thanks again for sharing with us.
