I'm so weak.....

I wasn't going to get involved in any more SALs but this Alexandre piece has been calling my name for months. I have been saving off the charts but had a terrible time deciding on threads to use. If you remember, I was going to use the Waterlilies Cherry Bark but didn't like the colors of the skeins I received. I was then going to use an SNC in Honeysuckle and had cut a piece of fabric but just never got started. Then the online group I belong to decided to start an SAL on the piece and I couldn't resist. Especially after I picked up this DMC Variations thread (#4130) at Micheal's. I had a piece of Desert Sand linen in my stash and got started last Saturday at my friend Nancy's stitch in. Here is my progress so far - I just can't seem to get a good close up photo but I'll work on it. My fabric is 32 count so it's going to be a bit smaller than the original design but I'm really happy with how it's looking - this is a great over one project!

Weakness has such an undeserved bad name IMHO. LOL!

Ha! You and I share the same weakness. I've started that piece too and I am no farther along. I love it and I VOW to finish it! You'll be my motivation.
