I was excited to receive the next part of the Mystery SAL! Here it is all stitched up:
Since I’m having so much fun with this one, I decided to sign up for another SAL. This one isn’t a mystery at all (you can see the glorious red band sampler if you go to the group’s homepage linked above). The only problem is picking the materials. I had one piece of 40ct. linen that was long enough, but it had a yellowish cast to it that I didn’t really like for this. You KNOW I’m going to use at least red silks, maybe black too….so yellowish linen just won’t work.
So of course it was time to do a little shopping.
I ordered some Weeks Dye Works 40ct. linen because I’ve heard great things about it. I went with the basic “linen” color. Now if I can just settle on which silks to use…
Decisions, decisions! I have to hurry up and decide, though, because several pages have already been released.
I also have supplies coming for another glorious red project: Antique Lace Band Sampler designed by Northern Expressions Needlework. I’ll have to learn some speciality stitches for this one, and it has both beads and ribbons! Definitely a challenge, but I can’t wait. It’s just too pretty.
I can’t wait for all these goodies to arrive!
