My Itty Bitty Start

Prairie Schooler "N"
My picture is crummy and doesn't do the colors justice =(
I have had a slow start and even slower progress, but here is what I have so far.

I am stitching all of the letters on one piece of 25 ct Potato Lugana fabric, using the charted DMC floss in a 1 x 1.

I am finding this WIP to be a very fun challenge, and I can't wait to sit down each day to work on it some more!

I will keep you updated on my progress.

I am just awed by everyone's progress as I now see how much it entails, and I especially adore your personal touches....brilliant!

Thanks for allowing me to join you all.

Hi - I am trying to figure out how big of piece of fabric to purchase. Is there a listing of what others are using for this? I looked thru the older posts, but I don't see any information. I am waiting for the patterns to arrive and can't wait to get started. Thanks so much for any help.

Thanks :) I have been following everyone's lead...you are all so talented!

Pamela...I am using a 25 ct Lugana 1x1 and it's 1/2 yard (I bought 1 yard 55" x 36" and cut it in half) I got it from 123stitch.com
