Here we are again! I'm so happy you're back!
Did you figure out whether you would stitch the charts as ornaments or a sampler? Did you gather all your supplies? Have you already put your first stitches in?
I had several questions this past week, so I will answer just a few of them quickly…
Q: How many skeins do I need of each color?
A: Since I haven't stitched the sampler (and only the first 2 ornaments), I'm honestly not sure. If you're stitching over two threads with ONE strand of floss, then I would say you should be safe with 2 skeins the red and one of each of the others. (Please note: There are only 60 stitches used with the color gold.)
Q: What colors did you use for the gold and the black?
A: I never used those colors, because until this stitchalong, I had not designed or stitched any of the other blocks. So please feel free to choose whichever gold and black you like the best! (And the same goes with the red and green!)
Q: Are the red and green you used (Cranberry and Weathered Vine) cottons or silks?
A: They were silks. Those two colors aren't available in the Classic Colorworks (formerly Belle Soie) line of cotton fibers.
Q: Will there be an additional border around the sampler layout?
A: There will be no additional border, unless you'd like to add one yourself (which would be fun!).
If there is anything I haven't covered in any of my previous few blog posts, let me know, and I'll get back to you!
And now it's time for your Week 2 chart! I hope you enjoy stitching Four Calling Birds.. and I've added an interesting little note on this particular lyric on your chart. 🙂
