One door closes...another one opens. :)

I have decided to give up on the Marquoir. I've tried for several days now to get back into it and I just can't do it. I think the piece is beautiful, but I don't think it is for me.

So...I decided to cut off the bit I had stitched on and immediately start work on a new piece. I've joined Ink Circles Mystery SAL, Book of Ink Circles aka BoInk. I've picked out my colors and started. Once again the picture quality is lousy. Please forgive. :)

Edited to add: The fabric is a 32ct dove grey. The DMC I think I will be using are 820, 413, 797, 550, 3818, 340, 3750, 518. I'm a little concerned about a couple of the colors, so I might still change one or two of the colors that I haven't used yet.



My progress so far (1 day)

I like the floss colors you're using, those I can make out. But what color is the fabric?

Hi,

Just look for Monopoly SAL under Yahoo groups. That is where I joined. The group moderator will send you a copy of the pattern.

I can't wait to get started! Best of luck to you on this! It should be a lot of fun to stitch!

Take care & Happy Stitching!
