For those of you who haven't seen the Attic Needlework Newsletter (I doubt that this means anyone who will read this), here is some additional information on La D Da's Margaret Cottam Sampler:
Three part, beginning in mid October, then in November and December. The bottom section will be first. DON'T FORGET TO START AT THE BOTTOM!! Size is 170W x 200H. It is stitched on Weeks 30 count cocoa, but of course that is up to you. The pattern calls for 8 skeins of WDW; the colors won't be announced before the sampler's release. Attic will choose silk overdyes once they know the threads.
FYI Attic will cut the fabric in the following sizes, so you can begin looking through your stash to see what you have that might work: 30/32 count, 17.5 x 19.5"; 35/36 count, 15.5 x 17.5"; 40 count, 13.5 x 16". Can't we ever stitch things that will fit on smaller bars?
I hope the next BBD LF segment comes early enough that I can finish that before La D Da shows up in October. These gals know how to suck us in, don't they?!
