My New Start and a Finish-Finish

Hi Again Everyone,


This is my new start:  Dona Dorothea Gazano Y Garcia.  Love it!  The checkered stag has drawn me to this sampler from the get-go.  Now I just have a bunch of letters to do and then I can finally get to the animals.

A little wavy…I just threw it on the table to get a quick shot.  I am using DMC threads on 38 count Gander linen…one over two.

Also, I finished N. Hinde some months ago, but now it is finally finished-finished into a pin cushion.  I stitched this over one on 50 count.  The pin cushion measures approx. 2.5” by 2”.  It is tiny!!  And I love it.  I found red fabric with crowns on it in my fabric stash to use as backing.


Well, time to pay some bills and then settle in to watch Masterpiece Theatre.  Hope everyone has a wonderful week.  Hopefully I’ll be putting more stitches into Dona Dorothea.

You will have so much fun with Dorothea, great choice of sampler.

The backing fabric for N Hinde is perfect for her.
