Mary Ann MacDonald and Dorothy Walpole

Thank you, Jo and Nicola, for making this new obsession possible! I have a approximately ten Scarlet Letter WIPs, some of which I put on my blog when I decided to join you all. I'd love to finish these two this year. I have started Mary Ann MacDonald but don't have an up-to-date photo (I'll get one this weekend and post it). I love the grinning angel--looks a little like Rachel Ray, I think.
And here's my progress on Dorothy Walpole. For anyone thinking of working on it--the eyelets can be a bit tedious (although some people choose to do rice stitches, which I think look just as nice) but it is so worthwhile! I'm using the called-for AVAS silk on Picture This Plus 40 count in either Heritage or Legacy (I think.)
Can't wait to see everyone's progress! Glenna
