Making progress




I've been stitching away on Where My Heart Blooms, and thanks to Mary Kathryn have some WDW Charcoal again since I most inconveniently ran out, due to the frogging problem with the border. (Thanks again, MK!) Anyway, I think this is such a pretty chart and I have enjoyed stitching on the Jobelan. Any other Jobelan fans out there? I'm finding that I really prefer linen blends for softer, more cloth like feel. I love the way the 1/1 stitching turned out.



Look at this beautiful book! It is by Rouge du Rhin and I ordered it from The French Needle and received excellent, fast service. I am planning a very special project for a dear friend's wedding in August ... stay tuned for details.

Where My Heart Blooms is beautiful Rachel! I am a Jobelan fan when it comes to over one, but linen wins on over two.

A very lovely book, and I can't wait to see the project you will do for your friend.
