Triangles sure are the theme with Mystery IX. I made a start on the second triangle of Part 8 tonight - I made it as far tonight as I did on the first night of stitching the other one of these triangles. They are quite a bit of work. They are super pretty in real life, though. The colors in this garden are just amazing! And, I don't find stitching this one to be as burdensome (so far...) as Medieval Town Mandala.

I spent a while today going through Hand-Dyed Fibers' site to create a conversion for Bay Sampler - I have been anxious to stitch this but am not going to buy 19 skeins of Thread Gatherer Silk 'n Colors at $7.00 a skein for it... Vikki was even helping me to convert this via email, although her suggestions were based more on the DMC alternates and were rather dull... so I picked all kinds of bright and variegated shades - I can't wait to see how the silks look when they arrive. I selected: Straw, Midnight Rainbow, Flame, Holly Leaves, Dragon Tears, Elephant Ears, Ecru, Dragon Blood, Double Moss, Castory, Malt, Ocean, Earth Dragon, Dragon Scales, Knucker, Blueberry Creme, Cafe Latte, Blue Sky and Aubergine... I post this primarily for my own record :-) I might pick up the R&R Americana Blend that is called for... or I might go a little brighter, depending on my silks when they arrive... I wonder how my selections will turn out.
