BBD Question??

I have a question that I hope someone can answer.....I am getting ready to start the Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers "Summer", "Autumn" and "Winter" (all on one piece of linen) and was wondering if one skein of Manor Red (used to stitch the alphabet) was enough. I will be stitching this on 32 ct. linen. I don't want to risk not having enough and then having a dye lot issue but I don't want to buy more if it really isn't needed.

Thanks in Advance!!

Hmmm....that is a good question. I've got them sitting in my "to stitch" pile also.

One of my friends is stitching the model for our LNS - she said to tell you that you will need two skeins for sure of Manor Red, Endive, Maple Syrup, and Piney Woods. She hasn't stitched the parts with Wildberries, but she thinks you will need two for that too.

Great question, I have mine sitting waiting to start once the fabric arrives and I finish the Birds of a Feather sampler.
