Third time a charm....
I am really happy to be taking part in this SAL. I have had these charts for several years and was never sure what to do with them, I just knew that I loved them. I was speechless when I saw the photo on Vonna's blog that got this all started. I was thrilled to see this sal and many thanks to Vonna for doing this.
I am stitching this all on one piece of 25 count ivory lugana, one over one, with the DMC threads that are called for except for a few changes here and there. I did change the red 3857 to 221, except for the letter A and I used 3721 there.
This was my third start on this, the first attempt was on 28 count over one and my eyes did not like that. I then tried a different 25 count, can't remember what it was but it seemed hard to see and was rather fuzzy, then I finally started on the 25ct. lugana.
As you can see from the date on this from my camera, I had this much done by Jan. 17th, I now have quite a bit of the B done so I will hopefully post again within a week.
I am really enjoying seeing everyone's progress and the different layouts.
