The first on my list will be Splendor by The Hearts Content.
I absolutely love all of the Splendor design and some day may be able to get my hands on the next one. I don't like kits, so I found someone with the chart only and traded her the copy of Blue Ribbon Sampler I had for it (Thanks LISA!!) and she got me a gift voucher from Vikki Clayton's site, Hand Dyed Fibers, for enough silk to stitch it with.
I'm stitching it on a 28ct Heathered evenweave and using some mystery spools that I got with the gift voucher. The silk is a variagated blue and I hope two 50 yard spools will be enought. I'm stitching 2 strands over 2 threads.
When I finish this one I hope I can find someone who has just the chart and not the kit (I don't do kits) for the next one that will trade with me for it. :)
I'll post a picture tomorrow of my progress. Ya'll wish me luck in getting this finished!!

I really, really HATE the mats. They were not what I picked out, but I took it anyway because Sarah loved it. The blue mat is alright, but that other one is really bad. If it had been a closer match to the fabric color it might have worked out alot better. I do plan on having the mats replaced.

This is the Floss Toss for the new Papillon Creations Mystery for 2008 called "How Does Your Garden Grow".
The fabric is Silkweaver's "Poltergeist" 32ct Lugana and the threads are HDF, from left to right, Victorian Leaf, Verdigris, Nectarine, Blue Violet, Seafoam & Rose Blush.
This is Part 1 of Marquoir Story by Isabelle Vautier of Passion Broderie.
I had started this once before about 5 years ago and was using a really bright red, green and yellow on a 28ct white evenweave. I just recently decided to pull it out and work on it some more and just didn't really care for it with the bright colors. So I decided to start it over.
This is done on Silkweaver's "Everglade" 32ct Lugana using DMC colors 520, 729 & 3726. I really wanted a more traditional look to this and love the colors that I'm using.

I plan on doing the whole alphabet series and make them into a quilt for my new granddaughter, Zoey.
I've made my first completion for the new year and have also made my first start for the new year!!
I plan on setting up a 10/25/50 Challenge for this year, but need to get my list together. I know what my first challenge will be though, that's getting my stash organized. :)
Will post more later, when I actually get something done and get started on my organizing.
