Mystery Sampler 1 is a Chatelaine design by Martina Weber and will be released in monthly installments over six months. It is on 32 count linen and stitched using Olde Willow Stitchery Threads, The Thread Gatherer Silk 'n colors, Rainbow Gallery Peitite Treasure Briad. Delica Beads and a hard to find Mill Hill Treasure enhance this sure to be beautiful design.
I am still working on the first colour in the outer border which was the first installment at the begining of January.
Lower right corner.
I know this is hard to see but it's not the photograph it is the fabric. I'm really not happy with the fabric I have chosen. I couldn't not get the fabric specified as it appears to have been discontinued. I think the colour is too dark and the finish on the linen is very stiff - it's not at all pleasant to work with. At this stage I have probably only done about five hours on it so the question is do I stop now and order some other fabric or do I soldier on?
This part of the border should be really simple to stitch and should not be causing me any difficulties but you would not believe how many times I have had to frog.
I think I shall do some browsing on Silkweaver website and see if I can be tempted to restart the piece before I get any further.SS
