I'm still really enjoying doing Hardanger and see lots more of it being done now. This was my finish this weekend.
Stitched on 28count White Linen
with DMC #8 and #12 Perle Cotton and floss
This is one of the four designs on the chart and I will be doing all four of them. Emie Bishop has been a favorite designer of mine for years and I was lucky enough to meet her at a stitching show in IL in the late 90's. I did one of her designs and entered it in the Arkansas State Fair was was surprised to win "Best of Show" in the Hardanger catagory. I have also started another of her designs "1996" Angel" but my eyes just were too tired to handle the buttonhole stitch on 32 count fabric. I'm doing it with Pink Perle cotton on a light Pink fabric and when finished I'm sending it to Donna for the Stitch for a Cure tree. I hope to have enough progress to share with you later this week.
I'm working on Monopoly today and then will get back to the birth sampler for Maddie. Speaking of the little cutie, here is a picture of her in the "Piglet" onesie I stitched for her. Thank goodness I got them done and in the mail to her before she outgrew it.
