Waiting in the wings...

The reference to waiting in the wings is for the materials that I pulled over the weekend for BOAF's Kindness Sampler. I bought the chart and materials at a LNS in Plymouth, MA ages ago. For whatever reason, I never got around to stitching it and had kind of put it out of my mind until recently. It was on the wish list of a stitching friend I was in an exchange with and I sent her the chart and threads. Cheryl has started hers already but I've yet to put the first stitch in mine.
The fabric is a 32 count Lakeside Linens called Gypsy Gold that was double dyed. I think it will look great with the Weeks called for in the pattern. I wish BOAF was still designing because I really like their stuff.

I have not done much stitching so far this week as I've been kind of tired in the evenings. I have put a few more stitches in both my current CHS pieces and will share updated photos soon.

That's a lovely fabric/thread combination. I've not heard of that Lakeside colour before, but it's gorgeous!

Patti, I love the pattern and I love the fabric you chose for it. It will be a fantastic piece. Wonderful colours of fabric and threads.

I look forward to seeing your progress on this one - the fabric and thread colours are really scrummy :) All the very best for 2010 - hope it's a year filled with wonders of all kinds for you and your family :)
