I finished Part 1 of the Mystery Sampler today. I am right on schedule since Part 2 arrived in the mail yesterday. Now we start on the interior of the piece. For those of you following my DMC conversion, I ended up using DMC 831 for the WDW Sage. I had originally thought I would use DMC 370 but after comparing it to the Weeks floss I went with the 831.
So now dear friends I have a question. Is it okay to mix the overdyes with the DMC? I have some of the Weeks flosses and I believe I would really like the subtle shading they would offer on the tree trunk and the alphabet. Would this be a stitchy faux pas?
As I was looking at the chart for part 2 I thought this would be a wonderful opportunity for a contest and some additional summer fun. I have been having all sorts of thoughts on what lies behind that bird nest picture that will be the final installment of this mystery. Those of you who are stitching along know there are several colors that haven't been used that must appear in that lower left corner. So, what do you think lies in that lower left corner of the finished piece?
Submit your best guess on this post by July 1st. Then we will wait
impatiently for the final installment to be revealed sometime in mid July. I will put together a little prize package for the person who guesses the closest. In the event, more than one person hits the nail on the head - I will draw a name from the correct entries. (No fair if you have some sort of inside information, please don't submit a guess). You don't have to be stitching this sampler to participate (although you should, it really is a lot of fun) - just head over to Brenda's blog and read a bit to gain some clues. One entry per person please. :o) I can't wait to hear your guesses!
