Catching Up

Here is my February ornament: Workbasket's Quaker Heart on Glasgow 28ct linen [color: raw linen] stitched in GAST Cranberry floss. Like my January ornament it features a Quaker design and is finished as a fringed pillow with a hemp cord hanger. I am going for a rustic country look for the entire set.

I have started on my March ornament, Quaker Flower by The Sisterhood, using the same linen as my other two ornaments and stitching it in Belle Soie Tortoise Shell and Lilac. I hope to have it finished by the end of the weekend. That way I have a shot at catching up next week ... if I can find a suitable rabbit chart to adapt for my purposes, probably by replacing some of the solid stitching in the haunch with a Quaker motif.

I know I have stitched it and it is way too large, even stitched over one, to be an ornament.

Beautiful stitching and finishing!
