In 2008 I fell in love with a trio of dress designs from Vervaco, New York, Paris and Moscow.  Unfortunately, being Vervaco, they were only available as kits.

New Years Day 2009 I started Moscow.  I was well on my way to a quick finish (the combination of Holidays from work and Summer Cricket working its usual magic) and then the kit ran out of floss. It was a specialty LANA floss that, like Whisper, fuzzies up after you finish stitching with it.

Later I found the paperwork in the kit where to send for replacement floss.  I asked for 6 strands of white Lana and 1 thread of beige Lana.

Somewhere around 8-10 weeks later as I was moving house, the envelope arrived with 6 strands of Beige Lana and 1 strand of White Lana.

I moved house many times after that, never quite getting the project and the envelope with the threads together at the same time until now, February 2013.  I have stitched up the one thread of White Lana and have sent off for more yet again 🙂

  1. Looking good. I knew you would not resist for long!

  2. Holy cow!! That looks fantastic already!!!

  3. Thank you – it is an easy stitch mostly. That is only four shades of colour. Unfortunately two of the similar shades also have similar symbols, but I made a working copy of the chart and am highlighting each bit of the way ….

  4. Great progress Mel! You’ve really got a lot done on this one.

  5. Wow that is amazing already! And I have no idea why my comment is starting in the center and going to the left from there!

  6. I love this design – and you’ve already got a lot stitched on it!! Looks lovely!

  7. I said so when you got the chart – it is SO you! And it’s coming along nicely, too!

  8. Great work, Mel! This is stunning already!

  9. Gorgeous!!! You’ll have this one done in no time!!

  10. This one is my favorite of the dresses so far.

  11. Its a different designer than the last two 🙂 But yes this will probably be my first finish for the year. I didn’t get a single stitch in it yesterday, but the cricket is on today!

  12. Very elegant looking! Great pattern.

  13. Thanks Nancy and everyone. I’ll take another pic today and then put this one away. BoInk is calling again and the RR has just tapped me on the shoulder too …..

  14. This is lovely and will look gorgeous framed with the others

  15. I might even get back to it next month 🙂
