Planning a new project

I have gotten my Scarlet Letter charts I ordered. I couldn't decide which one I liked best, so I bought three of them.

I have also trying to decide which one I want to start this month to join Nicola's Scarlet Letter challenge and to work on throughout the next year.....but I think I have made my choice. I will start with Dorothy Walpole as that is my favorite. Here she is with the fabric I bought, 36ct linen in the color Flax. I will probably use DMC cottons. I would LOVE to try the AVAS silks, but just can't afford that right now. I think it will look gorgeous no matter what threads I choose.

Here it is in more of a close up

I hope to begin putting in the first stitches this weekend.

I am currently stitching SDW sampler in a SAL with Nicola and some other ladies, Dorothy will be next up for me, love the colours.

I am stitching Blue Ribbon and SDW sampler on 36ct Edinburgh linen in flax and it has been a lovely fabric to work with.

Enjoy Nikki, it is going to be amazing.
