Call me crazy but I have an urge that I'm finding impossible to resist. I want to start another BAP! I'm torn between two possibilities right now. And of course I don't have the charts, linen or silk fibers and both will be over $100 to kit. The first is St. Reatham by Long Dog Samplers. I'm thinking of a golden yellow linen a la Vintage Autumn Gold from Lakeside Linens with a dark blue silk thread. I'm thinking that if I set aside one evening like a couple of my fellow bloggers are doing with Paradigm Lost would work. Sure it will take a while but at least I'd make a start. Both ladies post once a week their progress photos and I can see they are moving along.
My second choice is Mermaid's Folly by Courtney Collection. I'd go with the same combo of golden yellow linen with dark blue thread.
Both of these are long long term projects with Mermaid's Folly being the larger/longest of the two finishing on 32 count linen 36 x 15 while St. Reatham on 32 count would finish at 24 x 19. Of course I could go with a 35/36 count but I'm uncertain at this point if that is how I want to go. But I need to think of the savings in money - it won't be much but a savings is a savings. Not to mention the difference in framing.
Right now I'm really leaning toward St. Reatham. It's just calling me....
