A Post for Barbara G - Ruthy Rogers is finished




I have finished Ruthy Rogers.  Lots of fun.  I am showing you a picture just as I was starting the final border of leaves -  this picture is much better than the second which I took after completion and off the frame.  I am obviously not a photographer.  


When I have it framed I will send another.  I am planning on doing a completely wild frame that would have, perhaps, appealed to Ruthy had she been able to choose from what we have available today.  We’ll see.

Bravo, brave Barbara! It's actually fun once you start free wheeling with your needle, filling in the stem stitched areas.

I echo all the comments before mine.

I had made up my mind that I wasn't going to purchase any more patterns. But, after viewing your beautiful Ruthy, all my intentions just flew out the window.

Your stitching is exquisite and I'm anxious to see the frame you select. Please don't tarry.
