I finished up the vine/flower motif (stems in GAST grape leaf and flower in GAST berry cobbler) and moved to the squirrel area this week, which I have just about finished (just need to put a few oatmeal stitches in the design around Mr. Squirrel).
Once that is finished, I will begin stitching the last motif on the top right-hand side today. My goal is to get that finished by the end of the weekend before I have to put MW into hibernation for awhile, again. I need to start some exchanges as the mail deadline of May 1 is coming soon...and exchanging stitching of smaller projects will be perfect for airplane projects as I am getting ready to leave for Washington DC as a chaperon for my older son's 8th grade trip.
Welcome to the Mary Wigham USA Stitch-Along Blog. I hope everyone enjoys working on their own Mary while seeing everyone else's progress! It's inspirational to see all the different color combinations being stitched! If there are any questions, please contact Valerie, Group Moderator, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
To be as all inclusive as possible we are suggesting 32 count Permin Lambswool stitched over 2 threads and you will need 24" x 24" or 60cm x 60 cm of linen. (The design area will be approximately 20" x 20" - 50cm x 50cm.) If you are able to stitch smaller, then please do. Mary's sampler is approximately 13" by 12.5" - 33cm x 31.5cm. The stitch count is approximately 300 stitches by 290.
Floss colors: Mary Wigham SAL - DMC Threads Here are the DMC thread shades for Mary Wigham but feel free to convert them to whatever threads you prefer. You will need 1 skein each of: 225, 352, 356, 407, 433, 435, 519, 725, 739, 746, 927, 930, 934, 963, 966, 3052,3768, 3822, 3855, 3857, ecru, white, black. There is no 560.
Obviously, we are all open to chose what ever fabric color/count we would like to use. Same goes for flosses. It was just suggested by a member that this be posted for easy access for everyone.
