What fun it's been to see the choices being made for this great stitch along! As soon as I saw Nicola's posting about it, I knew it was something I'd just have to do. There have been several SL charts in my stash for a long time, with vague plans for doing at least one of them .....someday.....!! But I think this is finally the push I've needed to make a commitment.
Krista, it looks as though you and I can be partners, because I have also decided that I'll be starting Ann Grimshaw just as soon as I have a few other little projects tidied up.
I also wasn't feeling the black and wanted a subtle variegated blue. Turns out, I've been hoarding a skein of Silk n' Colors with the intriguing name of Finnegan's Fog for years, just waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it. This is most definitely it. Seems to me there's a big piece of vintage 40 count in the linen box with no specific purpose that ought to just suit this perfectly.
At the risk of waaaaayyyy over-committing myself, I've also decided to at least make a start at some point on Jane Atkinson.
Yesterday's rummage through the stash boxes wasn't quite so productive for this one though. It would break my heart to stitch it in anything other than silk. But after a quick scan of what was called for, I saw I only had 3 or the 26 shades of Au Ver A Soie on hand. Once all the silk has been acquired, I'll get going on this wild beauty too.
I'm so looking forward to reading more about each other's choices!
