George Has Arrived!!

I had posted previously about this project and I had been eagerly anticipating getting started. Well, now it seems more real as my package arrived on Friday with my supplies. But just to refresh you, dear readers, I am participating in a large project of George Washington Crossing the Delaware. There are 112 stitchers that are each stitching a panel for the piece. Once all the panels are completed, they will be put together to make the largest cross stitch project stitched to date. It will be going to a museum and will be in the Guinness Book of World Records. We do not have our start date yet but it should be soon and we will each have five years to stitch the panel.

Wichelt donated the fabric and Sullivans donated thread, thread cards, needles, needle threaders, and a needle holder. Please support these businesses for their great generosity. I am posting pictures below of the supplies. The first picture is my portion of the pattern.
