7th Nov 2018
I have just completed the first six designs for my new SAL which will start on the 1st January 2019. This time it will be a series of owls so a bit different to the Sunbonnet Sue lasses.
The border is simple backstitch in red and I am going to suggest that DMC 666 in Perle no 12 is used. Alternatively 1 strand of stranded cotton in 666 will be OK, but will not give the same finish to your design. Full details for the border chart and a list of the threads you will require - many have been used this year for our current SAL - will be posted on the 5th December after the final Sunbonnet Sue design is posted on the 1st.
The size of fabric that will be required is: 16.6 x 23 inches (422 x 582mm)
This is for 14 count Aida or 28 count evenweave for a design size: 10.7 x 17 inches ( 272 x 582mm)
Stitch count: 142w x 230h
I think this sampler will be great fun to stitch and if you haven't already then please join Katherine So and me for 2019 and enjoy seeing how everyone is getting on. Otherwise the charts will still be published on my Website BLOG each month so they will always be available for all.
Have a good week and happy stitching,
