Good Wednesday morning, dear friend!
It is now official, the Quaker Village SAL, hosted by lovely Noelle of Le Chas de L'aiguille (The Eye of the Needle) has begun!
We began stitching, as of Saturday July 30th, and made our first stitch in the upper left corner...I love the fact that we all started together and in the same spot so that we are all following the design in unison, and I believe the plan is to stitch one page of the charted design each "step," however since most (if not all) of the girls speak French, I am relying on Google Translate and what I remember of my high school French to follow the instructions...so I may be wrong...but I'm having a blast and making new friends...brilliant!
I usually begin my WIPs in the middle...even after all of these decades of needlework, I still follow that rule...so this took me a bit out of my comfort zone, but just to make myself feel more comfortable and since I buy my Monaco by the yard, I cut myself a piece of fabric larger than I needed to make up for any margin booboos.
Anyway, I digress...We are stitching "Quaker Village" by Jardin Prive.
What a fun stitch this is...
I chose to stitch on White Monaco, using the charted DMC floss
I love Nathalie's designs, and have stitched quite a few...two of which "My Lady's Quaker" and "A Gentleman's Quaker" have been sitting in my closet unframed, so my goal is to frame all three and hang them together, when this one is finished.
Our next check in is August 14th...watch for updates.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
