The Great Pumpkin Conspiracy idea

Last week I mentioned that I wanted to stitch the new chart from Cross-Eyed Cricket called the Great Pumpkin Conspiracy. I further moaned about the price of the nine colors of Silk N'Colors required to stitch it. A couple of folks said they would be willing to split the cost of the silks with me. I did find a retailer on eBay who will sell me the nine skeins for $40.00 which is already a nice savings. I have the chart in hand and I will count stitches for each color to figure out how many of this design can be stitched with one skein of each. I'm hoping at least four of us can stitch from one skein of each.

Jolene and Tracy, can you confirm by email that you are still interested? If anyone else is interested in this possibility please also shoot me an email. I'd be willing to purchase more than one of a couple of colors if it means that more of us can stitch it as charted at what would turn out to be a very nice price. :-)

Here is my progress on Autumn Bouquet.

And on Houses of Hawk Run Hollow - house #9.
