I've made a start on this little beauty. I was able to begin working on it Sunday after ironing the fabric, sorting out the threads, and counting out where to begin the design. While doing that I realised I was missing the variegated thread that is supposed to be in the kit, but decided to continue because I knew I could contact SB direct and they would send it out to me. Which of course they are doing. They're so good like that, if anything's missing from their kits. (Thanks to Alison also for being ready to let me know their contact details if I needed it - that's so kind)
Snow Patch - 20 July 2009
So I've started at the bottom, which is usually what I do with their long samplers. Their instructions read from top to bottom but I find it easier to work my way up than down. I stitched a little last night as well, but not for long, so I haven't gotten very far with it. I think the start is always the slowest.
I can tell I'm going to enjoy this one. It's a design I bought a number of years ago and loved it as soon as I saw it. I'm surprised I haven't started it before now. Better late than never, they say!
