    I took the step!

    Hi Folks,

    I just bought my first ever Golden Kite pattern tonight! I bought James Tissot's - A Passing Storm. It's a pattern that GK had once sold before but no longer sells in its store. I really love the painting and added a picture to the Suggested Patterns gallery but after contacting Marcus, he so kindly sold be the older pattern, just received the pdf today!

    I'm excited to get started, but I have a project to finish first, a late Christmas present, hopefully it won't take too much longer. In the meantime I can decide what count fabric to use, needles, gather my materials, etc... Decisions, decisions..

    Congratulations on your purchase Anna! Isn't Marcus the greatest? Hopefully you'll soon be able to start it and we'll be able to follow your progress. Please consider joining in our Stitch-Alongs (SAL's). You will find that they are great motivators.

    Hahahah thanks guys! I just love the painting so much, well I love all of James Tissot's paintings. I will definitely keep everyone updated on my progress and post pics. It's so neat when people keep a photo diary of their stitching progress, so much fun to browse through, and motivating! Can't get my older project done fast enough! I want to start this project nowwwww, but I only have one stand, lol. I'm not sure when I'll be ready to start, I'm hoping it will be in the next couple weeks! My husband is going to be so excited, lol.
