This will be a very loosely organized SAL.
--Participants may work at their own pace and choose charts in any order that suits their fancy.
--Participants may post photos at any stage in the process: WIP, Cross Stitch finish, Final finish.
--Since only retailers who attended the 2006 Indy market are authorized to distribute or kit these charts, all participants are asked to refrain from copying and/or sharing the charts with others. Those wishing to acquire the charts should inquire at their favorite LNS. I do know they are available [with an additonal purchase] as a CD-rom of all 41 charts from The Silver Needle in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
--Let's all have fun with this very generous gift from the participating designers.

Crescent Colors' Village Saloon

This was a very enjoyable project. I enjoy using Crescent Colors fibers and the colors in this piece are just luscious.
Sharon of Crescent Colors shared a bit about the inspiration for this piece in a post on the 123stitch message board. As a child, she always wanted to be Miss Kitty [Gunsmoke] wearing those pretty dresses and feathers in her hair. It was only when her mother gently broke the sad news that Miss Kitty did a bit more than pour whiskey and play cards in her saloon that Sharon abandoned her dream.
This was stitched on a Silweaver cashel linen, 28 ct., called Starquest.
