One Step Closer to DbyCS.

I am one step closer to starting Death by Cross Stitch. I ordered my black floss and it came today. Yes yes I know I am going to need a lot of black floss so I just ordered a cone of DMC 310.

Its 500 grams of DMC 310, it's approximately 2270 yards. That's going to be more than enough to do this project. The fabric should be here tomorrow since the piece I had wasn't big enough after all. What a shame I had to buy new 40 count Linen and some new needles.

Started a new quilt today for my brother in law Richard. I am using the flannel shirts he gave my when I was there in October. I deboned the shirts while I was getting over my Knee Replacement but just put them away and forgot about getting the quilt made. I am going to make a Scrappy Mountain Majesty by Bonnie K Hunter. I have 20 blocks done and was playing with layouts but have not decided which one I am using. 

 There are a few more layouts that I can try once I finish a few more blocks.

Happy Stitching Everyone.

It never occurred to me to order a cone of floss! What a fabulous idea. I will be using a slightly variegated, so the cone idea for this piece will not work, but I will need to consider that from some of my other huge piece. Where do you order it from on cons?
