You are going to have so much fun. Did you hear Rosemary's old yarn store is closing on Saturday, they are having a big sale. But still it is so sad.

Hi Cari - Thanks for sharing your conversion - I have two other conversions off FB and will go thru my own stash of various silks and make some choices very soon. Yes I agree - it will be so fun to participate in this. Hope you are having a wonderful holiday season ! Mel

Oh wow! So pretty! I'm going to save this conversion for sure. I haven't decided on joining the SAL, since I'm lousy at them, but I do want to stitch this one sometime. Thanks for sharing!
