Welcome to the Prairie Schooler SAL blog. This is a blog to celebrate our stitching of the wonderful designs from the lovely ladies of Prairie Schooler. Pamela and Nancy are retiring to take a well deserved break after 32 years of giving us cross stitchers the most wonderful designs and so much pleasure. The rules of the blog are simple: post a progress pic or a finish whenever you like, as long as it is a Prairie Schooler Design.

Well, I think a mentioned this in a previous post that I was having trouble deciding on a fabric for my Prairie Schooler I'm stitching for the SAL. These are the 2 fabrics I was deciding between,
Floss Toss Heatherfield
26 count Natural Heatherfield
Floss toss 14 count Linaida
My problem has been I really, really, REALLY love both of these fabrics. I normally do not like brown fabric. I don't like natural/dirty linen or any of the recommended browns. These are really the only 2 browns that I like. And guess what? They're both discontinued! So I'm taking some precious pieces out of my stash to stitch this. I think I will go with the Linaida. I love the heatherfield but I'm afraid the darker browns won't show up too well on it. So I'm going with the bottom choice. So my heatherfield is safe for now.
And for anyone who is interested, Nancy over at the Victorian Motto is having a give-away over at her blog, Victorian Motto.
