Two Down

My quest to stitch 3 Stacy Nash patterns for a wall grouping continues. I detailed the first one here. And now I have the second one finished...

Early Style Alphabet Pillow Pinkeep

by Stacy Nash Primitives

fabric: 28ct Irish Linen in Tea

fibers: DMC

These were both stitched on the same brand of Irish Linen, same count and both in Tea~~but from different packages. The colors were slightly different, which can be expected. But the weave was much looser on the first one. Guess that just adds to the primitive feel???


One more to go. Don't think I'll get it done this month, LOL :)

A heartfelt thanks for stopping by and for all of the wonderful comments! I 've got to catch up on my Google Reader. And I need to update my link lists too...
