I went to Michael's last night with the husband and got all the DMC floss for the new chart. I decided I wanted to store this floss a bit differently, so I bought a box and the bobbins and spent most of the evening organizing the floss. I'm embarrassed to admit how much fun it was.
The bill was the longest piece of paper I've received in a while. Tee hee!

Sadly, Michael's did not have the fabric I needed, so I am off to another shop on Monday, just outside the city, to get it. The chart suggests 25 ct Linen or 18 ct Aida but I think I will go with the same fabric I used for the Hermit - Hardanger - but will stick to the 25 ct as suggested rather than scale down to the 22 ct.
Target completion date - January 2016.
