The Four Seasons


I am so glad to have joined this SAL.  I love Prairie Schoolers designs and am so disappointed that they have decided to retire.  That being said, I have never actually stitched one of their designs.  I have lots of them but have never gotten around to working on them.  So I decided that this was a perfect way for me to actually stitch one.  I've decided to stitch the Four Seasons.  I have had it for years.  When I first saw it, I didn't get it so when I wanted to stitch it, I couldn't find it in any of the stores.  Then many years later, I located one in a used bookstore.  I snatched it up and have been wanting to start it ever since.  But other things always took priority and it just kept getting shoved back in the filing cabinet.  But this is going to be the year I actually stitch it.  I have all the floss pulled.  I just need to decide on the fabric I'm going to use.  It's between 14 count Linaida or 26 count (over 2) Natural Heatherfield.  I think it will look great on either one.  I'm going to stitch it as one piece.  I've already talked to the framer at work and we decided that it would be easier to frame that way.  I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else will be stitching.

Ooh, pretty! I've never seen this one before! Now I need to try to find it!! Great choice :-) I prefer 14 count myself but I'm sure it will look fabulous on whatever you choose.

Ohhh, what a great chart this is. I thought I had all the charts of the Designer series but quite obviously I don't as I hadn't seen this one before. What a great choice for starting the SAL, Bette.
