Scarlet Ribands


Here's the start of Scarlet Ribands from Long Dog Samplers.
On 28 count white evenweave, with Weeks Dye Works Strawberry Fields floss.
This is three days, and just over 5 yards of floss. I have 50 yards, and I'm not sure if that will be enough, so the plan is to skip the text till the end, so if it's slightly darker of lighter, it will still work. I've already decided to leave off the cat and mouse. The goal is to complete one motif a day. And I've already added a few stitches here and there to please my eye, but I'm hoping that this is a chart that I can just stitch, and not want to change or alter.
Should finish at 11.5 inches square. The photo will never do the color justice, it's an interesting pink.
