The Earth Gatherers

I had a hard time settling on a new project yesterday. Because I already have Wool Gatherer and Herb Gatherer finished, I decided to tackle The Earth Gatherers.

I was a little intimidated. I haven't worked on any large in a long time. Then I opened the kit (which has been in my stash for YEARS!) and saw the 32-count fabric. INTIMIDATED even more. Then I pulled out the unsorted floss-wad and the bead/embellishment pack. ARGH!!!! How in the world do you tell the browns apart.

I decided to pull the floss from my stash and match it up as I go along. So far, so good!

Now not even the fabric is intimidating me. It's not nearly as hard to see as I though it would be. Good light and a bit of patience and I'll do okay!
