I'm enjoying reading about this project.

I'm glad it is you, dear Pirate, who is the worker bee working on this and sharing your experience for I am too faint of heart to consider such a thing these days. In my younger years I did tackle ambitious things (dozens of fine wool yarns to keep track of in needlepoint work, for example) so I've been there, done that but now it's my time to cheer on other talents.

Thanks Cathy. Hope to have loaded on the machine soon, first need to find the right wide backing fabric.

Wow! That is one humdinger of a project you have going there! You are so organized!  I often struggle with determining light, medium, and dark when pulling from my stash until  I get them all lined up. I look forward to watching the progress on this beauty.

Have you ever ordered wide backing from Marshall Dry Goods? I ordered it by the bundle and was very pleased with it.  Good prices and great selection.

A tip I learned back when for determining light, medium, dark...take a pic in black and white. It will show you values quite well. Also the ruby beholder or other such thing helps, but the photo is the easiest :D HTH!

I was looking at their wide backs a few days ago but not sure of the quality as I have never ordered from them before. Thanks for the recommendation.
