Look What Came Yesterday

I received my SYHO chart yesterday, as well as the charted fabric, floss and beads, and I am so excited and ready to start!

Feast your eyes on these sweet treats:

This is the first month in what will end up a year long project. When all twelve WIPs are completed, I will be instructed on how to combine them into a Designer Encyclopedia of stitching, while at the same time promoting Heart Health. You can read more about it at the SYHO blog.

The first in a series of twelve:

Chart: Glendon Place "A Life Lived For Others"
Fabric: Zweigert 32 ct Vintage Lugana "Autumn Blush"
Floss: DMC  225, 814, 815; Caron Waterlillies "Cherry Cordial," Kreinik #4 (Very Fine Braid) "Pink Mauve."
Pretties: Mill Hill Beads "Nutmeg" and "Misty"

I must give a brief "shout out" to Karen at Wassatch Needlecraft as she has the entire project for the month not only right there on her main page, but she has given us the option to purchase the supplies along with the chart, with just the click of an "add to cart" button. In other words, she has done all of the work and we get to sit back and await the arrival. Thanks, Karen! (Great name, by the way ;))

 I can't wait to get started.

Oh, dear friend, that rabbit hole gets bigger! LOL

There is nearly a hill done for my little lambies to stand on! Such fun to be stitching again!

Thanks so much!
