My Manifesto Update...Lots can get done during a NASCAR Rain Delay!

I had a chance to do a bit of stitching on my Manifesto yesterday.  As many of you know, I only stitch on this piece on Sundays.  I've posted two pictures...one is a close-up and the other is a full shot!  I am having a blast doing this sampler!  It's a joy!



Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Stitches,

Holly!!! This is so beautiful! Can you tell me where you got your silk gauze? I want to do Hannah Carter this way since it is a solidly filled piece! I got my pattern and silk and linen from Scarlett letter but the silk gauze looks fun! Do they tape it for you? Thank you for any information you can give me!! Do you enjoy this more than working on linen? :)

Love that red dress!! Your sampler is coming along so nice. Beautiful stitching.
I would also be interested in knowing where you get the silk gauze.

Sabrina and Debbie:

I got my silk gauze from an ebay seller.

I taped the gauze using needlepoint canvas tape and mounteded in on stretcher bars.

It is easy to stitch on and I love it! Come join the madness!
