Mary Wigham

Yay, my fabric for Mary Wigham arrived today. I am looking forward to getting started on it.



I am pleased with my new Kelmscott needle minder, I think my DH will be too. No more whines of 'Ronnie, I've lost my needle'.

Zeb - congrats you are the winner of the Comfort House freebie chart. If you email me your snail mail address I will get it into the post for you asap. And in answer to your question, I got Mrs Darcy directly from Tanya at The Sampler Girl.

I am away to pull the threads for Mary Wigham, I hope to be back soon with my first progress pic.

Have a wonderful week.

I am so happy for you that your fabric finally arrived. I already very excited to see what colors you are choosing for your Mary Wigham, or are you going with the original ones?

Look forward to seeing you make progress on MW - this is going to be the most popular SAL on the blogs over the next few months, I think :)
