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!!

Hi Kelly! I´m Magdalena from Germany and my english is very poor but i hoop you understand me.
I visited your blog and read your story about the Splendor (your work is very nice). Please have you one copy of Blue Ribbon Sampler to purchase or change (gift voucher or any charts) for me. I orderd this book by last week, but they don´t confirm my order and the book was day after no more on stock.
Please write me what you mean.
Thank you
Happy stitching
