Atelier Soed Idee 1905 Sampler SAL start

Began a SAL yesterday that is being hosted by Simone de Jong of Atelier Soed Idee. It's a free SAL and the first part has already been released. There are a total of seven parts to this SAL and so far it's been a LOT of fun. It won't be up for long, as she's posted the following schedule for the release of all seven parts:

15 december: Deel 2, Part 2
29 december: Deel 3, Part 3
12 januari: Deel 4, deel 1 wordt verwijderd, Part 4, Part 1 will be removed.
26 januari: Deel 5, deel 2 wordt verwijderd, Part 5, Part 2 will be removed.
9 februari: Deel 6, deel 3 wordt verwijderd, Part 6, Part 3 will be removed.
23 februari: Deel 7, deel 4 wordt verwijderd, Part 7, Part 4 will be removed
9 maart: deel 5 wordt verwijderd, Part 5 will be removed
23 maart: deel 6 wordt verwijderd, Part 6 will be removed
6 april: deel 7 wordt verwijderd, Part 7 will be removed

I decided that this was going to be the piece that I tried to stitch on the piece of 36 count that I had picked up on a whim. I have no idea what possessed me to try out a fabric with this low a count, but I have been toying with the idea of stitching smaller counts. So far, there hasn't been any squinting on my part, which is a good sign, LOL! :)

Here is what I have so far:

Design: 1905 Sampler

Designer: Simone de Jong of Atelier Soed Idee

Fabric Used: Zweigart 36 count Edinburgh Linen in Antique White

Fiber Used: Caron Collection Waterlilies silk in Cherry Cordial 

Stitcher's Notes: Stitched one strand of Caron Collection Waterlilies silk in Cherry Cordial over two threads of 36 count Edinburgh Linen in Antique White.

I have left off the 1905 and the JHA initials so far as I am waffling between stitching the piece as is, or adding this years' date and my initials. The floss that I am using would NOT have been available in 1905 that I know of, however, it will be fun to do the research on that. :)

Well, I must be off. Need to get out another project to work on until part two comes out on the 15th :). Hope everyone is having a fantastic week! :)
