Britt and I are planning to start stitching the BBD Anniversary pieces on the 15th of this month. On Tuesday, I pulled the first chart and went through my fabrics and the fiber list. I am short a few fibers so I placed an order for the ones I am missing from the first and the 2nd charts.
I have decided to to put mine together in a sort of fabric book, sewing two designs back to back and creating a pocket between them to include mementos or something. I'm still not sure on how I will construct the book but that can percolate as I stitch the series. I am thinking something the lines of this however I plan to bind mine like a regular book down the left side.
While the chart called for a neutral fabric, for some reason I kept seeing green for this design. I had two possible options in my stash, one 30 ct. Kudzu and one 30ct Tin Roof. The top photo is in natural light in my office and the one below is under my Ott light.
Once I have the other threads I need, I will put those down on the fabrics and make my choice but I am really leaning towards the 30ct Kudzu shown below.
