New to the Group

Hello Everyone I'm Julianne and I live in Nothern California. I'm about 40 minutes east of San Francisco.

I'm looking forward to the SAL. I'm currently thinking about what fabric and fibers to use. I want to use a distressed linen-probably by Lakeside linens and an antique rose color silk for my fiber. I guess a trip to the local needlework store in Alameda is in order. This is one project that I really need to shop for in person rather than on the computer.

I'm curious if anyone knows about the initials used in the piece? Can anyone shed any light on whose initials they are?

I look forward to the interaction here on the board.

Hi! Welcome to the blog. I don't know whose the initials are. I wonder if anyone here knows more about the background?? Love the sound of your colours.

Hi Hazel,

I am so looking forward to this SAL and have my linen already and my variegated threads (Carries ) on order... can't wait to get started.
Thank you for organising it

I don't know whose initials are on the original, but I am changing to mine and my siblings. To the American stitchers, have a blessed Thanksgiving.

Nice to see you here Julianne,this is going to be such a fun SAL

Julianne,in the original pattern leaflet it says the designer was unable to determine who the initials represent and she hopes to find out someday. She thought they might be someone that attended Ackworth School but that didn't turn out to be true.
