New SAL: Paradigm Lost

Jo and I started our next SAL tonight, Paradigm Lost by Long Dog Samplers. We have been waiting a long time to start this one! We had to finish Garden Spot Sampler first, and that one took us many months to finish. As I was working on this one tonight, I was thinking that Jo and I sure do pick long SAL projects - LOL! This one might be faster - all one color!! Sorry about my washed out photo. I scanned the piece first, but it came out terrible. So, I went with a photo... not a ton better! I am using Silkweaver 40 ct Purely Primitive and Vikki Clayton's Konini silk for mine... I love this combination, and the silk is a pretty cobalt blue and violet... So similar to the Blackberry Jam Sampler Threads I was originally going to use for this. I can't wait to see Jo's. She is using Vikki's Indigo Ocean. That is a yummy color! Good choice Jo!! I can't remember what her linen is, so I hope she posts her update tomorrow. This will be a Tuesday SAL for us. I had great fun with this one tonight. I didn't want to put it down!

Hmmmm... it seems my list of ongoing projects is growing, not shrinking! Yikes! I better fix that soon! LOL
And, here it is... the new car...

New DVD Release Tuesday: She's The Man (I like this kid from her TV show)

Looking forward to watching this one grow - it's one of my favourite Long Dogs :) Nice colour and fabric too!

My sampler stitching friend has finised Paradigm Lost, The Token and Bois du Duc. I'm amazed at this accomplishment! She found a number of errors on Paradigm Lost and corrected them. Also, she turned the elephant's trunk upward so the good luck would not fall out. It's framed very simply in a very large gold frame.

Looking beautiful ... I love the colours you've chosen.

Mike's car looks like a real "boy toy" ;) ... My DH would probably be quite happy to trade in a few kids for one LOL

Bea said...

Great start, Carol. The colour you chose is lovely. And congrats on Mike's new car! It's wonderful.

Nicole said...

What a beautiful thread choice! Can't wait to see what this one looks like!

Nicole said...

Paradigm Lost is so pretty! I nearly bought that one at the LNS the other day... but talked myself out of it b/c I have too many other projects that need to be finished.

Michelle said...

Beautiful start on Paradigm! Can I assume you are doing this over 2 on 40ct?

I love this piece. Long Dog is such a great designer. I have ST. Germain by them and despite the fact it is currently in the UFO pile, I still love them. It looks great.

I started WOTM and hope to have a pic of it up tonight. Ann.

Wow, you're off & running on this one. Great combination of colors. I have a piece of the Purely Primitive that I've been saving for something special. I love the subtle hues in it.

Can't wait to see you!!

Katrina said...

Great start to the new SAL. I love the fiber color!

Kiwi Jo said...

You surprised me Carol - I thought you would have started in the middle! You made great progress and I love the konini colour, but I love my indigo ocean colour too :) Unfortunately I haven't been feeling very well so you are already way ahead of me but I'm going to stitch some more over the weekend and catch up.

Jenna said...

I really like the colors that you are using for Paradigm Lost. You and Jo certainly choose ambitious SAL pieces! Oh, and Mike's new Corvette looks really nice!

Von said...

I, too, love those colors you've chosen for PL. Nice and cool. :D
That's quite a car Mike has! Do you get to drive it sometimes? I'd sure love to take that baby out for a test drive, lol!

tkdchick said...

Grat start! Oooh can I have Mike's car? I'll trade him for my Hyundai Accent (snicker)

Lelia said...

Totally clean wheels, Mike -- excellent taste in machines!

Gesh, my 16yo is drooling & says "so hawt"

Hey, wanna trade my Honda Civic for it??? LOL ...

Paradigm Lost looks good -- I have to look at the link to see what it will become when finished. Just loved the Garden Spot sampler.
