Hello fellow Mary Wigham stitchers in the USA!!! I am excited to join this blog and anxious to begin Mary for myself!
I am Sabine and I live outside of Houston, Texas. I am currently working on three Heaven and Earth Designs (all on either 25 or 28 ct Lugana, 1x1, full crosses) and Cirque des Cercles on a wonderful 28ct lagoon Lugana with Crescent Colours in Rainy Day.
I am torn on how to stitch Mary. I want to do a reproduction, approximating her fabric and fibers as closely as possible and leaving her initials and mistakes. But, I do not like the colors and I feel that if I even just tweek the shades, I might as well make it my own. I have a dark blue and green with lemon yellow color scheme floating through my mind. In either case, I will have to order fabric and floss soon as Mary is my Christmas gift to myself!
I have enjoyed looking at all of your progress and even finishes! I can't wait to start, but I will try to be good until the 24th!!
