Hello everyone

My name is Grace, I live in North Oxfordshire in the UK with my husband, 2 children and a dog!  I hope that this SAL will motivate me to start and complete the BP Quaker, which I was lucky enough to see in person last April at Beatrix Potter's house in Sawrey in the Lake District.  It hangs on the wall in her bedroon behind the door.  It is smaller than you would imagine, with tiny stitches. 

I am planning on using Vikki Clayton (HDF) silks in Fishpepper 4427 and 4425 with White chocolate for the cream accents. I am using the called for Zweigart Antique Ivory, either over 2 on 36ct or over 1 on 28 ct. Not sure yet which to go for, I might have to try out a couple of motifs and see which I like best.

This is the first time that I have joined a SAL or written a blog so steep learning curve for me! If any one can send me an idiot's guide to posting pictures on Blogger I would be most grateful.  (I use an iMac).  Thanks.

Welcome Grace! You're doing fine :)

For uploading pics let me try:

1. Click the 3rd icon from the right, when you hover your mouse over it it should say 'Add Image'

2. Click the browse button and select your image file.

3. Choose the layout and image size and click Upload Image.

You could preview your post before publishing it just to see if all's okay by clicking the Preview link at the right most of the tool bar.
