I Am Ready!

After MONTHS of salivation over the CDC pattern and many disappointments that I just could not find what I was looking for in the fabric and fibres available to me at work the stars have aligned! I originally wanted to do it on Waterlily linen but after a quick fondle of the bolt at work I just couldn't bring myself to do it. What terrible fabric! I took a chance and asked them to order in some of the same colour but in an evenweave, Jobelan, hoping for a better quality and after a long wait it arrived yesterday. It's gorgeous! You know what? It's a crappy quality evenweave, so it actually has a linen-ish look to it! So, I have the best of both worlds in my fabric choice. I knew that finding an overdyed floss that would go with it was going to be a challenge so I opened myself up to possibilities and took the bolt to the wall and ya know what? I found something! It's not quite what I had planned but I am going to make it work. I was able to find silks (yes, silks!) in various shades of green and I should have more than enough here to complete CDC. I am sitting down this afternoon and planning it out, switching colours for different circles. I think right now the plan is to do the 3 circles that intersect in the middle in the variegated green/gold floss but I am VERY open to suggestion. Here's my floss toss on the waterlily. I am going to go make my working copies right now!

I have way more work to blog about (complete my goals pics and various WIP pics) but I am just to excited about starting CDC today. Come back for more tomorrow!
