Hi everyone!

Those who have not joined the poll for the October freebie are asked
to do so
before noon on Wednesday Sept 30th.  You can join our Yahoo group on
the website and then register your vote in the Poll section to join
the Stitch Along.

This is a small project.  Just a little something that you can use to
fill with something small.  Makes a great little gift.

The deadline to join is noon Wednesday Sept 30th, 09

You need White Aida,

Coordinating colored wrapping paper enouch to go around the container.
A round
tin like the 20 tea bag containers OR a small peanut can. The diameter
of the
lid should not be more than 5 inches across.

The list of DMC colors you will need.

Number Color
349 Coral-DK
350 Coral-MD
498 Christmas Red-DK
893 Carnation-LT
895 Hunter Green-VY DK
902 Garnet-VY DK
934 Black Avocado Green
987 Forest Green-DK
5200 White

Only 1 skein of each color. Most of these you will only need a few
strands at
most.

It is all the tea in China to a bad egg that you have a symbol count for
this pattern.  Why not just publish the symbol count, and note that if you
are stitching with 2 strands at 14 or 16 stitches to the inch, each 48
meter skein of floss will produce approximately 1800 stitches.  (I know, I
have been saying this sort of thing for YEARS).  Jim.
