A New Start

I went shopping with a friend yesterday and she is such a wonderful enabler :). She talked me into not one, but two new starts. I've only started one of them though. This is Maude Eloise 1891 by Blackbird Designs (2006), I'm using Country French Cashmere linen and overdyed threads. You can see a completed pic of it in my side bar.


This is going to be a fun (and quick) stitch.
I hope everyone had a great weekend. Thanks for the warm comments.

Great start, it does look like it will be a fun stitch. However, no fair tempting us and not telling all, so what was the other new start she talked you into that you have planned?

Cool. I love new starts. Although in my world this would not be a quick stitch.... heck an ornie in my world isn't a quick stitch. I must buy all the slowest needles!

Keep up the good/speedy work!
