Crazy January Challenge 2011 - Project 2 Progress

Project 2 on the list is Kell's Bog Off Sampler, you can see the pattern here at Kincavel Krosses

I've started on the border first as I'm using variegated thread, first time I've ever used it and I'm very pleased with the effect so far! I'm using Anchor 1203 which is a mixture of pinks and reds and stitching on 18 count cream aida.

Here is my progress so far :D

I'm still undecided what colour to do the lettering at the moment, I want to see the overall effect of the finished border but I have a feeling it may be pink! My plan is to make a door hanger by backing the design with pink felt and adding a ribbon or braid loop :)

Check back again tomorrow for Project 3!

Ooh, the border looks smashing with the variegated floss :)

I'll begin work on this one tomorrow night and I'm using variegated floss too. :) I'll start in the centre though - the we'll get to see it from both approaches. ;)

I love your colour choice - so bold!
