Hey! You thought you caught me buying a chart, huh? Nope, not really. Last year, about this time I suppose, I signed up for the “club” at Silver Needle and I think it was once a quarter, we got a small chart, the fabric, floss and embellishments.
It seems that I was always seeing something on flosstubes that other stitchers had received as part of an exclusive club and I loved the designs and wanted to try it. The charts were all by designers that I like but, even designers I love . . there are some of their charts that don’t appeal to me and most of the ones I got in this year’s club did not appeal to me and by the time I paid for the floss, the fabric, the chart and shipping, it was well over $50. They don’t send full skeins of floss – just the strands needed. They also cut just the size linen you need so it isn’t like I could add the linen to the stash so, I’m not signing up for any more of those club type things.
But, the chart I received yesterday is from The Scarlett House and I love it.
I’ll probably stitch this one. I don’t know that I’ll use the fabric they sent. It doesn’t feel like Zwiegart linen but it may be. I’m not sure – I may use a different fabric and different floss. I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it but it was nice to get a chart in the mail! 🙂
Very cute chart and I love the way the alphabet is down the side.

I’ve signed up for such a program with a well-known quilt shop. I am hopeful that I will be happy with it. Like I need anything more in my quilt making supplies!!! It will be interesting to see if I benefit from someone making these decisions for me! I like this chart you received,

I like that chart! I too like the alphabet going down the side. I’ll have to remember it in case it becomes available at a later date.
