Excited and ready to get started!

I'm so excited for this sampler! I too gave this to myself for Christmas. As for fabric, I happen to have a perfect sized piece of 32 ct linen from Silkweaver. I'm just not sure about the color. It is a light to medium blue. Any thoughts ladies? It would be wonderful to not have to buy any additional fabric.


  1. As the bottom 2/3 of the design is solid stitching I think you would not see the beautiful fabric to it's best advantage :0( Or, depending how dark it is, it may make the sky appear to be the beginnings of a stormy day. I had something similar picked out & now will be going to something more subtle, but not sure exactly what yet.......

  2. Cathy, I have kept looking at the fabric (and it is quite a bit lighter than the photo) and I am still leaning toward it. Your comment about a stormy day actually makes me like it more. I have always enjoyed storms. When I was younger my dad and I always sat outside on the covered porch and watched them. It is always fun to pick out the fabrics for projects. Good luck on your search too.
