Big Zipper start

Here is my Big Zipper start. Once I get the border designs in, it will go really quickly as all the charts are pretty small. I'm doing mine on 32 count Silkweaver's Purely Primitive. It's my second favorite linen after Heritage. I converted all the DMC to over-dyed. I think it's going to be very pretty when I'm finished.

Speaking of Silkweavers, did you see they are having the Showcase after all? This year's first prize for the large category is a $400 gift certificate. Would I love to win that! Think of all the Purely Primitive, Heritage and Days Gone By I could buy. :-)

Oh my gosh!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am clearly a few days behind in my blog posting, because I check your blog and see your beautiful new start and wow! Your stunning, gorgeous finishes. YGG!!! They are both absolutely gorgeous. You should be so proud of yourself. :) I love 'em--and the new start is fab, too.

I need to check out some of that Silkweavers Heritage!

Great job, Margie!

The thread switching is really going to make a beautiful difference on that!

What a great start. This is one of my favorites. I can't wait to start mine. I'm going to change the fabric too. Looking forward to more progress.
