Splendor I Progress - 11/25/08

I've started on page 2 and have gotten all the way across the bottom and have now started up the right side. I just love how this is coming along and it's a very quick stitch, too!!

2009 - Splendor by The Hearts Content

I've decided that the year 2009 will be a "finishing" year for me. I have so many WIP's and UFO's that I really need to get some of them finished. I will add a list of every WIP & UFO that I have found in my stash later and will add to that list as I find others around my house.

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!!
