Without further chit-chat, here it is.........excuse the color changes from photo to photo... I was playing around in the photo editor trying to get the linen to look like it does in real life- you know how it is when you are photographing needlework.
"Quakers & Quilts" by Rosewood Manor
Stitched on 40-ct Lakeside Linen - vintage bisque - and
with a conversion to Belle Soie & Silk 'n Colors threads
I couldn't wait to start a new project and I snuck in the first stitches on Lizzie Kate's 'Christmas Rules' the night before finishing Q&Q. I absolutely am loving this project! It's like a breath of fresh air after trying to finish up Q&Q - easy stitching, bright colors and just a joy. I actually may have this done and framed for Christmas this year if things go my way. I fell in love with it last year after seeing it stitched on some blogs. It's such a cute design - I have all the Halloween Rules charts too and plan to start that one probably in January for next year's Halloween. I even talked a coworker into stitching Christmas Rules with me - she cross-stitches but is more of a quilter most of the time. She loves Christmas though and couldn't resist.
Here's my start so far.........right now I don't feel like stitching on any of my other projects so am going to relax and enjoy this one for awhile!
