Almost ready to start

Thank you Hazel for organising this SAL. I have had this chart in my 'must do' cupboard for sometime but kept changing my mind about what colour to stitch it in. I am being true to my star sign by procrastinating ! At this stage I have some 32 count Jobelan out and I think the colour is Bay Leaf but now trying to decide on what shade of dark green to stitch it it.

I was lucky enough to spent 3 weeks in England in October this year and visited the wonderful Lakes District and managed to see Beatrix Potter's home Hill Top. I was so excited to see this sampler in real life so when I arrived home the chart came to to top of the project list. I have been stitching for many years and always have far too many projects on the go and keep finding news ones I want to do. I am sure I will never get through them all in one life time but one thing I do is always start a new project on the 1st day of a new year. It is one way of having an excuse to start a new project!!

Looking forward to following everyones progress - Best Wishes to all for the festive season

Wow! I have been to Hilltop twice and have not spotted it - probably because I never knew it was there lol. Oh well I am sure I will visit again. Your colour scheme sounds nice. xx
