A finish - Ellenor Wykcs




I finished Ellenor last night.




I have omitted the Alphabet at the very bottom.



This sampler is so pretty and I would be hard pushed to choose a favourite band.


Possibly this last band.


Here is an overall view. The light is not ideal for photographs, we are in the middle of a bad storm.



I plan to start Ruthy Rogers tonight.

Gorgeous Nicola!!! I love the colors. I hope everyone is safe from the storm. I just purchased Ruthy yesterday so you will probably be finished with yours before I even start mine. I look forward to watching your progress.
