Spirit of Jean and Mae

The ANG CyberPointers chapter voted to offer Spirit of Jean by Kathy Rees, a current Correspondence Course, to our members & I signed up! Recently, I obtained some great stash from Mae V-D, a past member of my local chapter, Main Line Stitchers, who passed away.  So, the basis of the colorway came from her threads. Plus, Mae is my middle name & my grandmother’s name!

You can see in the upper left side of the photo the Watercolours tag that has the color and lot number handwritten – now that’s old! And, I’m not sure what the overdyed floss is on the far left but it goes with the Watercolours perfectly. It is amazing that all the threads are over-dyes and makes it more challenging to select threads. 

I met Ginny, another CP and member of my other local Keystone chapter who signed up too, at Fireside Stitchery the weekend that the instructions arrived in the mail (thanks Candy for all your work) to select our threads. But, I used some Weeks Dye Works with very little variation to get what I wanted.  I was thinking how much easier it would have been to select the optional kit but I love these colors.  It’s been very fun stitching although it requires very careful counting!!

to tell you the truth I like your colorway and the threads you selected better than any of the ones offered through ANG. It is looking lovely and is a wonderful way to honor your friend.

Thanks Sylvia! I spent some time studying the design as I looked for threads.
