My Start

Well, I decided not to go with the Belle Soie after all. I stitched a little bit of the Rosebud and Noir, and although it was pretty, it just wasn't me. I decided I was going to go with some of the colors that Amy was using.


I was going to use WDW Baked Apple, WDW Red Pear (not pictured), CC Rosy Glow, GA Dungarees, and GA Grape Leaf. But then Jeanne post her picture of the NPI she was using. It was like a light bulb went off. Why didn't I think of using NPI before?? I wrote down the colors she used and went through my NPI stash. I had some of them, but not all.



I ended up going with 223, 222, 706, 344, 923 and 903. The linen I'm using is 40 ct. Vintage Lt. Examplar. I'm loving it so far!! :) I have also decided not to do the alphabet on the bottom. I'm just going to do the top part of the design. Looking forward to seeing everyone's start!! :)


  1. Lookin' great Nicole - you're going to be done in no time I'll bet! This is just the cutest design. :)

  2. Oh Nicole I just totally love your colors here!!! I already have some of them. This is just awesome!!
