Prairie Schooler Christmas Sampler start

 Started a special piece last night. I pulled all the silk floss for it and even dug out a special piece of 28 count linen and silk piece of fabric. This is an extra special piece and I wanted it to be an heirloom type quality. I started last night and I am being very mindful of my stitching and making sure each stitch is railroaded and looking pretty. I converted the DMC that was used into Soie d'Alger floss and this was no mean feat in and of itself. Lots to choose from and I had to make sure that it looked right on the fabric that I chose. I think it's looking very, very nice so far and I can't wait to see it finished! :)



Here are the stitchy notes and pic! :)



Design: Christmas Samplers II (Book No. 73)


Designer: The Prairie Schooler


Fabric: 28 count linen/silk blend in Natural by Wichelt


Fibers: Access Commodities Soie d'Alger














I am hoping to get some more stitching time in today as it's my day off, but we shall see! :)


Hope everyone is having a wonderful week! :)



Respectfully submitted,


C.

I love this pattern, but have not been able to find it anywhere. Would you consider selling it to me when you are finished? Thanks so much, and have fun stitching.
