Hoping to start with the group...

Hi all,
I found you sort of by accident, but what a nice thing to have happen . Also, I just love this particular chart and I'm looking forward to tarting with you. I pretty much have an idea of what I want to do. Either I will use a soft medium beige tone for the background and a kind of rich brick/rust color for the stitching. I have had this in mind to do for a long time, and just yesterday I went by a building that was done in these colors. Immediately I thought of the Beatrix Potter chart, and then I found this site in the evening. Talk about was really amazing, but I'm so glad I found it. Hazel and I were acquainted about a year ago, maybe a bit longer, and I haven't kept in touch -- partly because I lost all my e-mail addresses and contacts when my computer went south about 9 months ago. Besides that, life has been quite hectic this year, and I"m just now starting to slow down a little. I'll be checking my stash this coming week to see what I find for fabric if anything, and pull my chart and start looking for the just right color of rust brick shade that I want. I can hardly wait to start this one.

And Hazel thanks for setting this up! I am amazed at how much stitching and how many groups you get involved with and raising two kids, taking care of a household and goodness! I think I should take lessons on time management from you .

Looking forward to getting to know all of you....

P.S., Some of you might know me from the Legacy Embroiderer's Guild board, I moderate the WIP/UFO section there.

Hi Cathy and welcome on board! I really would not take management lessons from me - you should see my house! Piles of stuff everywhere! x

Hi Hazel,

You seem to be getting a lot of stitchign done. I just visited your blog, and Wow! Love that Suzanne Sampler, the exchange piece you did and the little pastel sachet. I wish I could say I have gotten that much done.

I'll be picking my fabric and sorting through my many spools of fiber, see if I have anything that really works. If not, I'll be ordering something. I'd love to see a picture of your fabric, I haven't seen that color, nor the threads you mentioned. The company is totally new to me. So if you can post a photo of them once the fabric arrives that would be great!!
Well, I am off to bake 4 pies to take to church tomorrow, and get myself into the shower and wash and set my hair. Have a great weekend! Cathy
