Mary Wigham SAL

Ok, so I joined this SAL. I was soooo excited. I promised myself I would not order anymore fabric but would use whatever I have since I have so much fabric. After about a week's delay in going through my stash I find that indeed I don't really have anything appropriate or the right size. I may need to bite the bullet and order the fabric. I am on the fence because I found a huge, beautiful piece of a light blue scrumptious fabric, the right count and plenty of it.
I am also on the fence about wanting to keep it as close to the reproduction. Another part of me wanted to do it in a monochromatic scheme. So... I may do it in the light blue and try to use the same colors called for...OR I will order the fabric and do it in the same exact colors....OR I will do it in reds...OR...maybe in blue with red colors.....OR..... I will go back to working on one of my WIPS while I think some more.

I can oh so relate!!
I ended up ordering a piece of 32 ct. lambswool jobelan. I don't want to tackle something this big on linen!

I know that it is tempting to do a reproduction but.. I have seen so many of the samplers done with changes of fabric, fiber and corrected motifs that I wish I had waited and done something that fit my taste better.
I recommend that you take a tour of the international blogs for inspiration. What ever you decide it is a wonderful sampler to stitch. Good luck.
