Section Complete

The section I chose to stitch is now finished and I am really pleased with it. This photo is not the best but at least it shows whats done.
I had debated as to whether to stitch my initials so thanks Carol for the "permission" - that's an integral part of a round robin isn't it?! I too stitched my initials one over one. Wendy Jo please don't panic - I won't be mailing yet but I have other non-stitching committments for the next couple of weeks and wanted to get this finished first. I will post here when I mail the package off.

Carol's RR

I have now finished my section on my RR. As you can see I added my initials 1*1 and will be asking you all to add your initials into whichever section you choose to stitch! I will mail this out towards the end of August and will post when I have done so. I can't wait to stitch on the next one!

I am ready to go!

My fabric finally came in and I am all set to go! Here is my choice of fabric and thread. I went with 36 ct white edinbourgh and will be using Crescent Colors Wavy Navy.

I think I'll get a start on it today.

A start!

I made a start last night whilst re-watching 'I Am Legend'. Not the ideal movie to stitch to as it's mainly visual but I enjoyed the bits I did see. Sorry about the poor picture - the fabric looks grey when in fact it's antique white. I think this is going to be a fast stitch.

I ordered the chart and threads the week before last, but I am still waiting for the parcel to be sent. Lets hope it doesn't take too long. I received Edgar's breakdown of the chart and I am looking forward to starting. I have decided to go with the recommended threads for the polychromatic version on 36ct linen. However, I am making a few substitutions as the Olde Willow Stitchery threads are almost impossible to find.

At Least the Fabric and Thread!

The linen I've chosen really is this deep pink color with a lavender cast to it. It's 32 ct., Thistle Pink, from Lakeside Linens. I'm going to use Silk 'n Colors, with one green closest to you in the picture of Gloriana (Grannie Smith Green). Still don't have my chart!!! I've ordered it, but no response! Now I don't know whether to reorder it, or just wait..... Anyway, I'll meet you at the Starting Gate! :] Big Hugs, Deb/LavenderRose

A little start

Here is my little start from the other evening....

This is the lower right section. I am shifting up some of the bits so I wanted to tackle this one myself. I am very pleased with the colours.

And a start is made

Having chosen fabric and thread the next decision was where to start. After some dithering, some tacking and some measuring I decided to start in the middle! Here is a snap of progress so far - I am really really enjoying this. Thanks Edgar for inviting me on.

Breakdown chart arrived!

The breakdown chart arrived this morning - thanks Edgar! I can't wait to start but I have to finish my tiny red sampler first and I also need to get my fabric serged. Wouldn't this design look great stitched on 48/55ct linen? But don't worry I won't inflict you all with my new found passion of high count linens!

Who will be the first to post a picture?

I have made a start

Just letting you know that my "pack" from Edgar arrived today - such quick service even to the uttermost parts of the earth! Thanks very much Edgar. This evening I made a start and am already in love with this one. This week is busy both at work and after work so progress may not be too fast but I'll try and post a photo later this week.
