More 8 & Mary Wigham
June 2 already. Geez, I feel like I just said the same thing about May!! It keeps flying by, faster and faster!! Block 8 has been slow and steady. It seems like I have been filling in this mill forever. I love the colors, and the flowers on the bottom are wonderful. Just a nice touch of color. I have had enough of the mustard color for a while, but since I have another skein in my floss pack, looks like I am not done just yet :). You can barely see the letters on the top reading 'Jacob's Gristmill', yet to be surrounded by black and hanging branches. One stitch at a time!!
We all have been waiting patiently for the first download of Mary Wigham from Needleprint, and she came with flying colors last night. It is a wonderful treat for all of us Ackworth Quaker lovers, and a fabulous addition to our girls. With donation made, and Part 1 0f 9 downloaded, I was eager to pull colors and linen. Of course, nothing ever really comes without change! I am using NPI and the colors have been tweaked a bit. I chose is 40ct Pearled Barley from Lakeside Linens. I am anxious to get started on her. The colors are really pretty too! I havent joined any of the official SAL's, but I look forward to seeing others' progress and sharing my own. It will also be great fun to see everyones color choices!!!
