I am not quite sure what called me to this project. Perhaps it is because the supplies took a large section on my stash storage. Perhaps it was because someone else posted a photo of a big zipper design that caused me to go looking to see if I had the design. Perhaps it is most convenient that this design might fit in just right in the opening of my head board. It would frame it perfectly? I am not sure but it looks like it might. Who knows why we pick a new project. We just do. Now I am busy with finding floss to do the kit with. The kit appears to have a few mistakes and is lacking some floss. I have written the designer and I am waiting for an answer. Meanwhile I am making due.
This is called The Big Zipper, perhaps because it originally came in a large zippered mesh bag? The designer is Bent Creek. The sub title is Love Grows. On 18 count linen the design is to be 21" x 21". I am using some DMC cotton floss where I use all six strands at one time. Or I am using the floss supplied which is a perle cotton floss, single strand.
Let me know what you think... This first section is mostly border work.
