That’s actually the name of the chart. Here’s the photo I shared day before yesterday.
I had a couple of options for linen and chose this one:
It’s 36 count Tycho Edinburgh linen. I had some of the called for floss and some that were close enough.
I think except for the Ginger Snap, I’m using all DMC. Once I get started, I may end up using overdyes for the roof and the grass. I may have them and if not, I have others that will work. I’ve mentioned before but I’m just not going to spend $2.50 for half the amount of floss I get on a skein of DMC for 60 cents except when it’s for a big piece (house, roof, grass, dress) where the shading will make a difference. Small flowers, vines, tiny birds . . DMC is just fine.
See that pinkish/coral floss that’s on the bobbin in the middle? See the flowers in the border that are off white (Ginger Snap)? I’m thinking of switching those to the pinkish/coral. The Ginger Snap will show up in the house because there’s a lot of it but individual flowers, maybe not. I’ll see what I think once I start stitching.
I’m going to start this today – it’s my Valentine’s Day start. I don’t think it will take long to make but I always think that.
