I'm really excited about the Loose Feathers 2011 series! I am registered on automatic at one of my favorite online shops, and can't wait to receive my first shipment. The shop owner recommended going with the linen used for the model, which is 30 count Irish Cream, so I went with that. I've been stitching on nothing larger than 36 count in recent years, and using one strand of thread, so this will likely take some getting used to on my part!
I also managed to find a copy of the July issue of Cross Stitch and Needlework magazine(at KMart, of all places!), which features an article about Barb and Alma, along with a wonderful patriotic chart, "Land of the Free". I ordered the "Days Gone By" linen for this, in 40 count, and am hoping to put in the first stitches in honor of Independence Day.
