This is the Day!

To jump on the bandwagon~apparently!! I am in love with this sampler after seeing it being worked on all over blogland, so I decided to take the plunge! I am going to stitch it on 32 ct. Vintage Exemplar Light from Lakeside Linens. I have my own conversion, mainly because I didn't want to go buy the threads, just use up some of my stash.I used mostly Crescent Colors. Here is my conversion:

Tracy's colors=My colors
Pumpkin Pie GAST = Cidermill Brown GAST
Roasted Marshmallow GAST = Bamboo CC
Picnic Basket GAST = La Tierra CC
Tomato GAST = Chili Pepper CC
Old Brick GAST = Clay Pot CC
Just Rust CC = Just Rust CC!
Colonial Copper CC = Copper Penny CC
Camouflage CC = Weeping Willow CC
Black Coffee CC = Hickory Stick CC
Conch WDW = Garden Trellis CC

Another start~I must be crazy!!! :)

I have this in my pattern collection and have thought about starting it as well since there are so many stitching it, but there are so many other things too! LOL Choices are hard!

Anyway, I can not wait to watch your progress on this piece as I just love it!!

Glad to see that you're jumping on the bandwagon too. I'm about ready to start this one too after I finish a little project I want to finish. Funny so many people are stitching this - it's like we're all lemmings going to the sea! Can't wait to see your progress!

Glad to see you joining the bandwagon and looking forward to seeing your colour changes. It's so much fun to see the individual touches!
