and the Mystery begins.......

I have a link for you to download the PDF file for the First part of the Stitch a Long. 
Just click on these words "Mystery Stitch A Long Part 1"
I do have ONE change that I made and it is to the Floss that you need, 
You can eliminate Ecru but you need to add DMC 642. 
If you would like to send me photos of your progress please send them to stitchbythebay at hotmail dot com. If you do send them to me you are giving me permission to share them on the blog and if you have a link to your blog I will link them for you. I will not share any photos until at least Friday night or Saturday morning. This way people can stitch up a surprise for themselves.  
I cant wait until week 4 when we will embellish with embroidery. If you do not want to do the embellishing you dont have to the picture should be fine as it is. 
On this first part you will notice that there are some straight stitches. Please do not do these straight stitches until we complete all 3 parts of the design. Only cross stitching for the time being. 
Well good luck and most of all have fun
