I found this free pattern online and used some hand dyed threads I got from ebay. She has a great store, and sells 100 yards for $8 and includes free samples too!!! The threads are very muted verigated. Her seller name on ebay is 2500nancy.
I have finished part 1 of the Grand Marquoir and started the 2nd part last night. Of course i messed up and started at the bottom. Don't ask me why, I had a stupid moment. lol. So the bottom part I will be frogging as I have learned to call it and started at the right point AGAIN! lol..ah well, from hearing others it could be much worse.
I am addicted to crafts of any type. I knit, cross stitch, quilt and will try just about any type of crafty thing at least once. I'm married and have 2 grown children. I am currently working on a quaker carnation sampler and about 4 other samplers also.
