A Finish and A Half


Prairie Schooler Country Wise
28ct mystery linen
Called for DMC threads

I did revise the border and made it more simple.



Blackbird Designs Peacock Pinkeep
28 ct mystery linen
Gloriana overdyed silk threads (from misc package so I don't know the names of the colors)

This is my half finish.  There is still a long alphabet sampler that will go around the outside of the round box to stitch.  But I am pleased at the results so far.

Both are so pretty! Great job. I want/need to stitch that BBD--I'm just scared at the finishing aspect of it, as per usual!
